5 bundled out of plane for misbehaving with air hostess

Kolkata: Five youths were arrested after being forced to alight from a Patna-Kolkata-Bangalore Indigo flight at the N S C B International airport here tonight on charge of misbehaving with an air hostess.

Airlines sources said the six men allegedly started misbehaving with the woman shortly after the flight took off from Patna and continued their act despite protests by her and other crew members.

When the plane landed at Kolkata, they were removed from the plane by the Indigo authorities and handed over to CISF.

The six - identified as Md Hidatullah, A K Singh, Salman Khan, Amjad Khan, Ali Md, N Pasa from Bangalore - were later arrested by Airport Police on the basis of complaint lodged by Indigo.

Though the accused, all in their early 20s, claimed to have merely asked for water when the air hostess was passing by, the airlines refuted the claim.
