A Bangkok-bound Lufthansa flight from Munich landed at Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport Delhi on Wednesday after an “unruly” passenger allegedly created a ruckus mid-air.

While an official assertion on the diversion is pending, sources stated an “unruly passenger” was the trigger.

The passenger, reportedly inebriated, has been deboarded and handed over to the safety personnel at Delhi airport, as per sources.

Further particulars are awaited.

Last month, Delhi police had filed a case towards a 25-year-old man for purportedly inflicting a disturbance and verbally abusing the flight crew throughout an Air India flight from New York to Delhi.

According to the officers, the case pertains to a passenger who induced disruption on the flight and directed offensive language on the feminine cabin crew.

The case was registered beneath sections 509 of the Indian Penal Code and 22/23 of Aircraft Rules on the IGI Airport Police station in Delhi on October 1, following a grievance lodged by one of many feminine cabin crew members.

As per the FIR accessed by IANS, the cabin crew member reported {that a} passenger, a resident of Jalandhar, Punjab, on Air India Flight AI 102, initially assigned to seat 21B, later present in seat 45H, started making lewd feedback and verbally abusing fellow passengers.

“The passenger began running around and verbally abusing everyone. The cabin supervisor first issued an oral warning, followed by a written warning, ” said the FIR.

However, the crew needed to bodily restrain him as he endured with the identical disruptive behaviour.

“He also made a racist comment directed at me and the other female crew members in the galley, stating, ‘you girls are available for two dollars, ‘ and continued to verbally abuse other crew members, ” said the FIR.
