Guwahati/ 10th April’2018 (Prag News Desk):
An IndiGo passenger, Saurabh Rai was offloaded by the crew of the airline as he alleged became unruly with the crew members while trying to convey his discomfort over “excessive mosquitoes” inside the plane. When contacted, Saurabh Rai gave his version of the whole situation where he blamed the airline for not adhering to his repeated complaints of the mosquitoes inside and that before offloading he was instead misbehaved with.
Saurabh Rai complained that the Lucknow-Bengaluru bound IndiGo flight was full of mosquitoes, so when he raised an objection, he was manhandled by the crew, offloaded from the aircraft and was threatened later.
Meanwhile the airline claimed that it was Saurabh Rai who was actually acting unruly with the crew. Before the crew members could come to his aid, he had already gone out of control and started abusing the crew on board. Owing to his “unacceptable and misfit” behavior the crew members contacted their seniors and then offloaded the passenger. Later IndiGo released a statement saying “A passenger, Saurabh Rai, scheduled to fly this morning from Lucknow to Bengaluru, was offloaded on grounds of unruly behavior”.
