‘Terrorist on flight’ says Jet flyer from inside plane, detained in Kolkata
A 21-year-old man travelling on a Mumbai-bound Jet Airways flight was deplaned and taken into custody at the Kolkata airport on Monday morning after he allegedly made a social media post from inside the aircraft saying he was a terrorist.
A co-passenger informed the captain of the flight that Yogen Poddar allegedly wrote on a social media app, saying he is a “terrorist on board” on a day the country is observing the tenth anniversary of the terror attacks in Mumbai.
“While he was on board he was chatting with his friend on the Snapchat app with a handkerchief on his face. He had written ‘Terrorist on flight, I destroy women hearts,’ which was noticed by one of the passengers on board namely Mr Benjamin Placket, who was seated one seat diagonally behind him,” a Central Industrial Security Force source said.
