Passenger Assaults Pilot Amidst Lengthy Delhi Airport Delays

In a disturbing incident at Delhi Airport, a passenger is now facing charges after physically assaulting IndiGo pilot Anup Kumar. The assailant expressed his frustration during the pilot’s announcement of further delays caused by dense fog.

The altercation resulted in the passenger’s arrest, although he was later released on bail. The prolonged foggy conditions at Delhi Airport have contributed to an atmosphere of ‘chaos,’ impacting flight schedules.

The specific IndiGo flight experienced a significant delay of 13 hours, with other flights facing even lengthier setbacks. Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia condemned the unruly behavior, emphasizing that such actions would not be tolerated. He stressed the need for strict penalties to serve as a deterrent against such misconduct.
