The US bank Wells Fargo has released the urine culprit.
An Indian manager has been arrested after a peeing incident on a plane. Shankar Mishra is said to have urinated on an elderly passenger (72) during a transatlantic flight, a police spokesman in Delhi confirmed to the AFP news agency on Saturday.
According to the investigators, the accused initially went into hiding, but according to media reports, he was located in the city of Bangalore through his lively online activities and credit card payments. He was taken to the capital, New Delhi, where the police are now investigating the allegations. A 72-year-old passenger wrote to Air India to complain that Mishra, who appeared to be drunk, peed on her on a flight from New York to New Delhi in late November. Air India then turned on the police.
Air India admits mistakes
A letter distributed through a lawyer initially said that Mishra had already settled the matter with the woman concerned and had paid for her clothes and luggage to be cleaned. His previous employer, the US bank Wells Fargo, had already fired the manager on Friday after the “deeply disturbing” allegations became known.
Air India admitted on Saturday it had failed to “handle the incident better” and was reviewing its in-flight alcohol service policy. The airline had been heavily criticized for its inappropriate handling of the woman’s complaint, including its failure to report the incident in a timely manner. (AFP)
