Bengaluru : A woman passenger travelling on an Air Asia flight from Ranchi to Bengaluru has accused three staffers of the airline of touching her inappropriately.
The incident took place on November 3 when the woman, on finding the washroom unhygienic raised the matter with a staff member. However instead of looking into her complaint the staff forced her to return to her seat and threatened to deboard her, said the woman alleging that the male staff had touched her inappropriately while she was inside the toilet.
The three acused were said to have cornered her after the flight landed at Bengaluru airport demanding an apology from her.
The woman later filed a case at the Sadashiv Nagar Police Station.
Meanwhile the airline has in its statement claimed that the woman was seen talking over the phone while the flight was prepared to take off and used abusive language when asked by a staff member to switch off the phone as per the prescribed safety procedures.
AirAsia filed a complaint of its own with the airport police and reported the matter to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation.
