Vistara air hostess complains of sexual harassment, FIR lodged

"A member of our cabin crew operating flight number United Kingdom 997 from Lucknow to Delhi on March 24, 2018, reported an incident of sexual harassment by a passenger".

Vistara flight United Kingdom 997 departed Lucknow in Central India on March 24 and landed on New Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport when the reported harassment took place. The air hostess told the police that she was touched "inappropriately". The passenger was arrested following a complaint by the flight attendant. The alleged incident of molestation took place on Air Vistara's Lucknow-Delhi flight.

A Vistara spokesperson confirmed the incident to Fox News with the following statement.

Talking about the incident, Air Vistara spokesperson said, "We have reported the matter to the police and other relevant authorities. We are fully committed to providing our cooperation to all the authorities".




Newsweek has reached out to Vistara airlines for comment on the claim.

Some of the media reports suggest that the businessman could become the first person to be recommended by an airline for being put on the recently enforced 'no fly list (NFL)'. An individual could be put on a National Football League for upto three months for unruly physical gestures and upto six months for inappropriate touching. However, this time it is the airline cabin crew of full-service airline Vistara who is a victim of a sexual harassment. The actress had narrated her ordeal on Instagram through a live video.

The actor had said that she was on a Vistara flight from Delhi to Mumbai when a co-passenger sitting behind her put up his feet on her armrest.
