Two air hostesses of Jet Airways Flight no.9S24460 were allegedly molested by a 23-year-old drunk hardware trader, identified as Akash Gupta, on Mumbai Nagpur Flight on Saturday. The air hostesses gave a written complaint to the flight captain against the accused who was travelling on seat no. 41E.
Gupta had gone to Goa on a vacation. On return journey, he boarded the Jet Airways flight for Nagpur at Mumbai airport. Cops said Gupta, who had probably consumed liquor in Mumbai, grabbed the hand of the two air hostesses when they were serving him meal. The air hostesses immediately informed other crew members who stopped Gupta. But he argued with them too, so they informed the captain.
The captain, Gopalsingh Mohansingh, 42, informed the Central industrial security force (CISF) about the incident and handed over Gupta, a native of Balaghat in Madhya Pradesh, to them. CISF contacted the Sonegaon police who arrested Gupta and registered an offence of outraging of modesty under section 354 of Indian Penal Code (IPC). Cops interrogated Gupta and on Sunday produced him before the court which sent him to magisterial custody.
