- A man was arrested for molesting a Jet Airways air hostess and taking a selfie against her will
- He further violated aircraft rules by smoking in the toilet
- The man is in judicial custody and is booked under IPC’s 354 and 336
The air hostess’s nightmare started when she felt someone following her. She turned around to see Abubakar standing behind her. When he asked for a selfie, she turned him away. When she took her seat, he continued to stand behind her. When she got up, “he crossed the limit by grabbing me by the shoulder and forcefully taking a selfie”, the complaint reads.
The air hostess raised her voice. Hearing her scream, four cabin crew members reached the spot. “Seeing them, Abubakar went to the toilet. He came out after smoking in there. The crew warned him and asked him to hand over his cigarette packet and lighter,” said sub-inspector VS Pawar. “A probe is on to know how he cleared the security check with an inflammable item like a cigarette lighter. By smoking on board, he endangered several lives. His mobile phone has been seized and will be sent to the forensic sciences laboratory (FSL).”
