New Delhi:

A passenger triggered panic on an IndiGo flight when he opened the emergency door of the plane on December 10 last year. The flight was on its way from Chennai to Thiruvananthapuram. The IndiGo 6E-7339 flight took off after pressurisation checks soon after. The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has ordered a probe.

A senior DGCA official said they are looking into the matter.

“The incident happened on December 10 on IndiGo flight 6E-7339 from Chennai to Trivandrum. On Dec 10, 2022, a passenger opened an emergency door in IndiGo 6E flight 6E-7339 from Chennai to Trivandrum. The flight took off after pressurization checks soon after. The incident created panic among passengers and the flight took off after a safety check,” said the official.

Earlier, a man named Shankar Mishra had allegedly urinated on a 70-year-old woman in an intoxicated condition in the business class of an Air India flight on November 26 last year.

Delhi Police registered a case against him on January 4 on a complaint given by the woman to Air India under sections 354, 509, and 510 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), and Section 23 of the Indian Aircraft Act. Both the accused and the victim are from outside Delhi.

US-based financial services company Wells Fargo also terminated Shankar Mishra as its employee.

In the bail plea, the accused stated that he will continue to be cooperative with the police in the future as well and cooperate in the investigation in any manner or form required.
