A paragliding pilot at Himachal’s adventure tourism destination of Bir Billing has been booked for molesting a woman tourist from Mumbai during a flight.

Police said the pilot was being questioned after the woman submitted a video clip to buttress her complaint. “The woman has complained that the paraglider pilot molested her during a tandem paragliding flight. We are analysing the clip and have recorded her statement,” Kangra SP Sanjeev Gandhi said.

In tandem paragliding, two people, including the trained pilot, fly in a single paraglider.

The woman filed the complaint online after she returned to Mumbai. An FIR was registered against the pilot under section 354 (assault or criminal force against a woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the IPC.

The SP said the identity of the accused cannot be revealed until the charges are verified.
