After which I had also alerted a crew member of the flight to keep an eye on him.

Dr. Sugata alleged that the crew members of the flight did not follow the rules. Also, the victim woman was asked to talk to Shankar Mishra after the incident whereas this uncivilized act is a crime. He said that ‘this is a physical assault and no one should have intervened when it happened. I was very angry. I don’t care what a drunk person did because he was not in his senses but the people who had authority showed no sympathy in the matter. There is a pilot chief in an aircraft but he did nothing.

She told in her complaint to Air India that after the incident, the crew member cleaned the same seat and the victim woman was asked to sit back on that wet seat, while there were 4 vacant seats in first class. Several standard operating procedures were not followed. The woman could have been accommodated in another seat immediately after the incident but she had to wait for a long time. Dr. Sugata told that when he asked the crew members why he was not being made to sit on the vacant seat in first class, the crew member replied that only the pilot can give the order but the pilot did not make any such decision.

Also, the pilot should have alerted the ground staff and handed over the accused Shankar Mishra to the security personnel. After which he would have taken appropriate action but it was not done. Dr. Sugata said that the victim woman was very civilized and had tears in her eyes after the incident but despite this she did not create any ruckus. She remained calm even after this unfortunate incident.

Dr. Sugata said that he was talking about the incident in detail because the father of accused Shankar Mishra had alleged that his son was innocent and was probably being tortured to extort money. Dr. Sugata said it was moral for me to stand against it and I did. This whole incident is very sad. In which the self respect of an elderly woman was played with. A young man got into trouble and lost his job. His family had to face many difficulties.
