According to a police officer, a 30-year-old Bangladeshi man was detained here for allegedly sexually abusing a female flight attendant on a Muscat-to-Dhaka flight that was passing through Mumbai on Friday.
Early on Thursday, before the Vistara flight was supposed to touch down at Mumbai International Airport, the incident occurred.
“The suspect, identified as Mohammed Dulal, a citizen of Bangladesh, was traveling on a Vistara flight from Muscat to Dhaka via Mumbai. Dulal stood up from his seat 30 minutes before the aircraft was scheduled to touch down in Mumbai, hugged a female flight attendant, and attempted to kiss her, the official reported. When other members of the cabin crew and passengers attempted to step in, he allegedly also tried to flash at them.
Additionally, the accused passenger did not pay attention when the flight captain read him a red warning card designating him an unruly passenger, the captain claimed. The official further stated that after arriving at the Mumbai airport, the accused was given to security personnel who then took him to the Sahar police station.
According to him, a first information report (FIR) was filed against the accused and he was taken into custody as a result of the flight attendant’s complaint being filed in accordance with the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). He claimed that after being presented to a local court, he was ordered to remain in police custody until Friday.
