Following the Air India Urination Incident, Wells Fargo Fires Shankar Mishra

Shankar Mishra, an Air India passenger who is accused of peeing on a fellow passenger intoxicatedly mid-flight, was fired by his employer Wells Fargo on Friday. Despite the Delhi Police's look-out circular (LOC) and the deployment of four teams across three cities to find the culprit, he is still untraceable.


According to his LinkedIn page, the accused is a management professional who graduated from Narsee Monjee Institute and spent 10 years working for Citi Bank, the top provider of financial services in the United States, rising from trainee analyst to vice president. In a 2015 piece, he characterised labour as "demanding," stretching "oneself beyond the typical working hours." He recently assumed the position of Vice President at Wells Fargo in February 2021.


On November 26, S. Mishra, who was allegedly intoxicated, unzipped and urinated on her. He stood there, baring himself until another passenger motioned for him to return to his seat.


In accordance with Sections 354, 509, and 510 of the Indian Penal Code as well as Section 23 of the Indian Aircraft Act, the police have filed an FIR in this case. Both the defendant and the victim are non-Indians. In her complaint, the victim claimed that although she wanted the man to be jailed, the "crew brought the offender" before her against her desires and he apologised profusely, preventing a formal report from being made.


In addition, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) sent show-cause letters to Air India representatives and the flight's cabin crew, requesting an explanation as to why action should not be taken against them for "dereliction" of duty in managing the "urination" event on November 26. 


According to the aviation regulator, Air India's behaviour was "unprofessional," and on the surface, it appeared that rules pertaining to the handling of disruptive passengers were not followed.


Issuing a statement regarding the incident, Wells Fargo iterated, "Wells Fargo holds employees to the highest standards of professional and personal behaviour and we find these allegations deeply disturbing. This individual has been terminated from Wells Fargo. We are cooperating with law enforcement and ask that any additional inquiries be directed to them."
