Three men were arrested for allegedly misbehaving with the cabin crew on board an Air India flight (AI 102) from New York to Delhi.
It is alleged that the three men,all taxi drivers based in New York,threw alcohol on two air hostesses who approached the security detail at the Indira Gandhi International Airport as soon as the flight landed in New Delhi on Thursday afternoon.
Police said Varinder Pal Singh,Hardeep Singh Deol and Bhupinder Singh had boarded the flight with two bottles of liquor which have been recovered.
Throughout the flight,the men kept yelling and created a ruckus. They kept asking for more liquor on board. After a point,we requested them to stop creating a scene,but to no avail. The situation had gone out of hand, said one of the air hostesses in her complaint.
Angry at being stopped from consuming more alcohol on board,the three men threw liquor at the complainants face,police said.
The crew reportedly sent out a message to the airport security detail while the plane was still in the air. The three men were arrested as soon as the flight landed.
The three were arrested for misbehaving with the cabin crew under the influence of alcohol, said R A Sanjeev,Deputy Commissioner of Police (Airport).
The men are said to be in the age group of 40 to 45 years.
A medical examination of the men has been conducted and a case has been registered, said Sanjeev.
