Airhostess Komal Singh is likely to challenge in the court the clean chit given by National Commission for Women to two Air India pilots for allegedly molesting her in a mid-air scuffle on an international flight.
"Komal Singh has formally requested the NCW for the report. Once she receives it, then we, along with the members of All India Cabin Crew Association, will decide whether to approach the court or move departmentally," Komal's lawyer Sanjoy Ghose told PTI.
On Tuesday, the NCW panel probing the case had given clean chit to Captain Ranbir Arora and co-pilot Aditya Chopra saying the airhostess was not "molested but pushed" out of the cabin.
Meanwhile, Komal's family expressed disappointment over the report, saying they had approached the commission to get justice. They also expressed their unhappiness over the way the Commission handled the case.
"Whatever report we have got from the media is very disappointing. We have approached the commission thinking that we would get justice. But it is sad that the body which has been constituted for helping women is just replicating the airline management's probe report. If this is the outcome, then whom should we approach," Komal's sister Poonam Singh said.
