Drunk student urinated on passenger on American Airlines flight
A drunk student has been busted for allegedly urinating on a business class passenger during a 15-hour flight from New York to India.
Aryan Vohra, a 21-year-old Indian citizen studying in the US, was arrested in Delhi late Saturday after he disembarked American Airlines flight AA 292 from JFK, according to Indian police and the airline.
The pilot radioed ahead to warn a “disruptive customer” who was “highly intoxicated,” officials said.
“He was repeatedly arguing with the crew, was unwilling to be seated and was constantly endangering the safety of the crew and the aircraft,” American Airlines said. News Agency ANI.
“After disturbing the safety of fellow passengers, [he] Eventually urinated on a passenger,” the airline said.
The peed-on passenger has not been identified beyond the fact that it was a man in seat 15G, which is in business class.
Vohra apologized and pleaded with him not to file a complaint, which he seems to have taken away, police said, adding that the arrest followed a complaint lodged by the airline and not by the alleged victim. .
However, Vohra continued to “misbehave” after being led off the plane by security officials, airport deputy police chief Devesh Kumar Mahala told ANI.
Mahala vowed to take the “strongest possible action”.
American Airlines also canceled his return flight to the Big Apple — and banned him from all future flights.
Vohra was released on bail on Sunday as police investigations continue. It was not immediately clear if he was also in business class on the Boeing 777, and reports did not say where he lives and studies in the US.
ANI noted that this was similar to an incident on November 26 when a passenger urinated on a 70-year-old woman in the business class of an Air India flight, this time from Delhi to New York.
