An Indian origin citizen of the United States who travelled from London to Mumbai on Air India on March 10, was charged for smoking mid air inside the toilet. He was also charged for misbehaving with his fellow passenger and the crew members.
37 year old Ramakant went to the washroom and then suddenly the alarm went off. The crew members rushed to the bathroom and found Ramakant with a cigarette. The crew member got rid of the cigarette immediately and Ramakant started to shout at the crew. Somehow, the crew took him to his seat but later he tried to open the flight door, which shook all the passengers. He was shouting and not listening so the crew members tied his legs and hands and made him sit on his seat. Since the co-passenger was a doctor, he checked on him. Ramakant told him that there is a medicine inside his bag but they only found the E-cigarette. After landing he was taken to Sahar police station where he was detained and charged with multiple Indian Penal Code sections. And also the police added that they had sent a sample of Ramakant for a medical test.
Mumbai police registered the case under IPC-Section-336 (whoever commits any act so carelessly or hastily as to harm human life or the personal safety of others),Aircraft Act 1937 Section-22 (a) (failure to obey a lawful order given by the Pilot-in-Command), Section-22 (b) (assault and other acts threatening safety or eroding good order and discipline), and Section-25 (for smoking).
Later on, the Air India spokesperson confirmed the incident and stated, “Air India follows a zero-tolerance policy for any behaviour that compromises the safety and security of passengers and staff.”
