Bengaluru: Mumbai-based Shankar Mishra Arrested, who urinated on an elderly woman in an Air India flight (Air India Peeing Incident), was arrested by the Delhi Police from Bengaluru today. He was absconding since the incident became public and a lookout circular was also issued to trace him. The incident took place on 26 November 2022, but the report was filed on 4 January 2023. It is alleged that on November 26, on New York-Delhi Air India flight AI-102, an inebriated Shankar Mishra allegedly unzipped his pants and urinated on an elderly woman seated in business class. He later pleaded with the woman not to report him to the police, saying it would affect his wife and child.
Here Shankar Mishra’s lawyer has claimed that his client had contacted the woman who lodged the complaint and apologized for his actions. Even paid Rs 15,000 to the woman as compensation and got her belongings cleaned. The woman’s daughter allegedly returned the money after a month, saying they could not accept it. The American financial services company Wells Fargo, where he was working as India Vice President, has sacked Shankar Mishra, saying that the allegations against him are ‘extremely embarrassing and disturbing’. The Delhi Police registered an FIR in this matter on 4 January. He had formed several teams to arrest the accused, who was tracing him in Mumbai and Bengaluru.
Shankar Mishra’s lawyer says that after this mistake was made under the influence of alcohol, Shankar Mishra cleared all the things up by talking to the elderly woman. An agreement was also reached between the two sides, but now the matter is being given a new weight. According to the statement issued by the lawyer, ‘Shankar Mishra got the woman’s clothes and bags cleaned on 28 November and sent them to her house on 30 November. Then the woman had clearly said that she would not pursue the matter further and would not even file a complaint. His daughter spoke on his behalf.’ Meanwhile, the Delhi Police is in action mode and has summoned Air India employees in connection with the incident. Summons were issued to 8 Air India employees including the pilot and co-pilot for Friday, but they did not appear.
