The IndiGo pilot, who was assaulted inside the aircraft by a passenger while making an announcement of a delay, has filed a complaint following which the Delhi Police registered an FIR. The incident took place on Sunday inside the Goa-bound IndiGo flight from here. A video of the altercation went viral on social media platforms, sparking outrage and condemnation from users.
The viral footage shows a passenger, identified as Sahil Kataria, wearing a yellow hoodie, running up to the aircraft’s pilot and physically assaulting him in a fit of anger. The delay in the IndiGo flight (6E-2175) destined for Goa was reportedly due to heavy fog and traffic congestion at the airport.
