An airhostess of Thai Airways was molested by a passenger on Saturday night when the flight was about to land at Delhi Airport.
The accused, identified as Vinod Sethi, managed to escape after the incident but the police have traced him through his passport details. The airhostess is from Bangkok.
According to the statement given by the victim to the police, she was doing pre-landing checking when Sethi called her to come to his seat. “Pre-landing checking is done by crew members minutes before landing. We have to check that every passenger is wearing his seat belt and things in the kitchen are at the designated places as turbulence during landing could lead to fall. But when I was performing my duty, Sethi called me,” the victim told the police.
“He (Sethi) requested for a wet towel and I asked him to wait. But instead of waiting, he misbehaved and molested me,” she added.
The matter was immediately brought to the notice of the pilot who informed the airline security at the airport. Immediately after landing, Sethi was taken away to the terminal by airline security and Delhi police was informed about the matter.
A case of molestation has been registered at the airport police station and further investigations are on.
