Mumbai: A major controversy erupted after JNU student leader Kanhaiya Kumar alleged that he was assaulted on a Jet Airways flight to Pune on Sunday morning in Mumbai.
Kanhaiya alleged that a man tried to strangulate him. According to Kanhaiya Kumar, Manas Deka, who works in TCS and a strong BJP supporter, assaulted him.
However, a police official from Mumbai Sahar police has revealed an altogether different story.
'It was a seat issue'
"From the preliminary inquiry it has been learnt that the co-passenger had a window seat and while taking the seat he bumped into Kanhaiya Kumar," a police official said, according to a report in Hindustan Times.
'No assault or fight took place'
"They pushed each other, but there was nothing like an assault or a fight," the police official added.
However, police say that they can ascertain anything only after recording of statements of flight crew and the two involved in the incident.
