Russian flight cabin crew member alleges molestation by Delhi businessman
A 50-year-old man was yesterday detained at the Delhi Airport for questioning after a Russian airline crew member accused him of molesting her. The incident happened on a Delhi-bound flight en route from Moscow, after she asked him not to drink aboard the flight. He then shouted at her and followed her to the kitchen, where he allegedly touched her inappropriately.
Around 3am, the airline officials called up CISF and alleged that Ram Kishan had molested one of their crew members. As soon as the Aeroflot flight SU-232 landed, CISF personnel took Kishan in their custody and later handed him over to police. A resident of Paschim Vihar in West Delhi, Kishan deals in textiles and is a frequent flier, cops said.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (IGI) Sanjay Bhatia confirmed the incident and said that Kishan has not been arrested yet, but he'll be interrogated as investigation progresses. A case under IPC Sections 354 (for molestation) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) has been registered at IGI police station. Kishan has no past criminal record, Bhatia added.
