After the battle on the Bangkok-India flight, the minister announced action

New Delhi:

Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said on Thursday that police had filed charges against those involved in the brawl on the Bangkok-India flight. Four Indian passengers flying home from Bangkok rallied and hit another Indian passenger on the plane. The Minister considers such behavior to be unacceptable.

“Regarding the scuffle between passengers on a ThaiSmileAirway flight, the police have complained to those involved. Such behavior is unacceptable,” Mr. Scindia wrote on Twitter.

Thai Smile Airways said the assault took place on December 26 before a flight to Kolkata took off from Thailand.

One of the passengers refused to adjust his seat according to the crew’s safety instructions. The crew also told the male passenger that in the event of an evacuation, the reclining seat would prevent the rear passenger from moving and he would not be able to properly brace himself.

In a video of the incident that went viral on social media, the passenger can be seen hitting someone who didn’t follow the rules.

Passengers did not fight back and were seen trying to defend themselves as the crew and others on the flight tried to stop the attack.

The airline said in its report that no passengers were seriously injured in the incident. It added that none of the pilots involved were served alcoholic beverages on board. It says there is no other disturbance for the rest of the journey. The report also said that two passengers, who were found to have videotaped the assault, were asked to delete them.

Another passenger on the flight spoke to NDTV and shared account by blow about what happened on the flight. He said that only the man who refused to adjust his seat was to blame.

Last week, a video clip of a heated exchange between a passenger and a flight attendant on an IndiGo flight from Istanbul to Delhi was shared on social media.

The heated exchange about in-flight meal options occurred on December 16. IndiGo and the aviation authority DGCA, last week, said they were looking into the case.
