Foul! Churchill Bros players molest airhostess; get bail
Mumbai: In a shocker from an Indian football club’s fraternity, three of Churchill Brothers’ players have been booked and granted bail after being accused of molesting a Spicejet airhostess during their flight from Goa to Kolkata for a crucial I League match.
A case has been registered against them under the Indian Penal Code section 354.
In a statement, the airline had said, "Some passengers misbehaved with and abused the crew of the flight SG 804 from Goa to Kolkata via Mumbai. In the interest of the safety of other passengers, our pilot took a decision to offload them in Mumbai during the scheduled transit halt."
However, club president Joaquim Alemao said that skipper Odafe Onyeka Okolie, a Nigerian, accidentally touched an air hostess and apologised for the action.
"The matter was sorted out between Odafe and the air hostess. But another male crew started shouting and forced the hostess to take up the matter seriously and then the airlines offloaded the whole team from the aircraft. This was ridiculous," Alemao said.
"How can they offload the whole team for the fault of just one member? And having known Odafe, I can tell you that he is not the kind of person to indulge in all such activities. He has set an example not only on the field but also off the field as well," he added.
The club president said that the defending champions have lost valuable time ahead of their crucial I-League match. "It is a crucial match. We have already wasted practice sessions because of this mess. It was not even molestation. How can they offload the whole team for the fault of just one member? And having known Odafe, I can tell you that he is not the kind of person to indulge in all such activities. He has set an example not only on the field but also off the field as well," he said.
