As part of its investigation into the October 3 mid-air scuffle and alleged molestation on board an Air India flight, the National Commission for Women (NCW) will on Wednesday meet the air hostess, the flight purser and the two pilots involved in the incident.

"Members of the five-member committee constituted by the NCW will meet and take statements from the air hostess, the flight purser and two pilots," an NCW official told IANS.

The 24-year-old air hostess with Air India (domestic) has said the two pilots on flight IC 884, from Sharjah to Delhi via Lucknow, had molested her October 3. She complained to the NCW October 5. The commission, in turn, sought a report from Air India and Delhi Police on the allegation.

"We have already looked into reports from the police and Air India. We have also received letters from passengers on board the flight about what they saw," NCW chairperson Girija Vyas told reporters on Tuesday.

Pilot Ranbir Arora and co-pilot Aditya Chopra were questioned by Delhi Police on Tuesday and arrested later. They have been released on bail.
