Police said while the incident took place on November 26, Air India informed them about the incident only on December 28. “When we tried to contact the woman asking for her complaint, she stated that she has already given her complaint to Air India and that should be used as her original complaint,” the officer said.

Police asked Air India to share the complaint with them. The complaint was given to police on Wednesday morning, the officer said.

Air India came under fire from within and outside on Wednesday as details emerged of the horrific incident. The crew allegedly did little to help the affected person.

A Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) official said the regulator had not been notified, and that a report had been sought from the airline. “There were failures at multiple levels... In all, it’s a complete breakdown of the system,” said an airline official, who asked not to be named. The airline sent in its report to the regulator later on Thursday.
