An Indigo passenger was offloaded from the flight following by the complain of the mosquitoes’ menace. The civil aviation ministry has ordered an inquiry into the matter which took place on Monday.
Saurabh Rai, a Bengaluru based surgeon was traveling from Lucknow to Bengaluru by 6E-541 Indigo flight when he noticed the problem of mosquitoes and complain to the crew, but he was treated.
He said, “The indigo Flight from Lucknow to Bengaluru was full of mosquitoes. When I raised an objection, I was manhandled by the crew and offloaded from the aircraft. I was even threatened”.
He further added, “I heard the crew saying if you have a problem with mosquitoes then why don’t you leave India”.
However, the Indigo crew member have a different story to tell. The airline said, “Rai attempted to instigate other passenger on board to damage the aircraft and used words such as hijack”.
They further said, “Such actions are absolutely unacceptable, and there is zero balance for such threatening language on board an aircraft. Hence, keeping in mind applicable safety protocols, the crew apprised the pilot-in-command, who decided to offload Mr Rai from the flight”.
