An employee of Kingfisher Airlines was arrested on charges of thrashing passengers who were agitating over the delay of a Mumbai bound flight following a bird hit here, police said on Tuesday.
Krishna Yadav was arrested late on Monday from the Birsa Munda airport after a First Information Report (FIR) was lodged by a passenger against three employees of the airlines. The two other employees are absconding.
"We have arrested Yadav. The passengers were demanding facilities from Kingfisher employees after the plane was grounded due to bird hit. They were thrashed," Deputy Superintendent of Police Rajiv Ranjan told reporters.
The Kingfisher plane was hit by a bird near the Ranchi airport Monday night. The flight got delayed, leading to heated arguments between the passengers and the Kingfisher employees.
