An instructor at the Madhya Pradesh Flying Club was booked for molestation after a woman said he attacked her while giving her theory lessons.

The trainee pilot, before lodging the case, had also written a letter to Mandar Mahajan, the chief flying instructor of Madhya Pradesh Flying Club. The instructor has since been suspended. “I have suspended the instructor on Wednesday night. An inquiry will be done by the management of the club and his termination will be decided subsequently,” Mahajan said.

Police, however, said initial inquiries suggest there was “some exaggeration” on the part of the victim.

“She came here to complete her 10 hours of flying experience. She landed here on Tuesday and on Wednesday evening she was allegedly molested by the accused,” thana in-charge (TI) KL Dangi said.

Dangi said the woman had also taken training in USA and Punjab.

In the letter sent to Mahajan, the complainant wrote that she had two sessions of theoretical training in a room in club where the accused molested her.
