Indian police have arrested Shankar Mishra, who was an unruly airline passenger during a flight from New York to New Delhi, following a complaint by a woman aboard who claims that he urinated on her in business class, according to Associated Press.
Mishra was picked up by police in the southern city of Bengaluru and brought to the Indian capital on Saturday, New Delhi Police spokesperson Suman Nalva said. The Times of India newspaper reported that Mishra claims that he was drunk and could not believe what he had done.
A New Delhi court sent him to prison for 14 days as police investigate the complaint accusing Mishra of outraging the modesty of a woman during the flight.
“Air India acknowledges that it could have handled these matters better, both in the air and on the ground and is committed to taking action,” said the airline’s CEO and managing director Campbell Wilson in a statement.
