Panaji: On the day of Christmas, a passenger of an IndiGo flight was caught smoking in the aircraft toilet by the cabin crew as a strong odour of cigarette smoke came from the toilet. The cabin crew questioned the man on board IndiGo flight 6E-947, going from Ahmedabad to Goa on December 25.
Smoking is not allowed in domestic flights under India’s air safety rules. The cabin crew then alerted the captain and told him about the policy that bans smoking in planes.
When the flight landed in Goa, the matter was brought to the notice of the local police station. An FIR was filed against the accused, who was then handed over to the Central Industrial Security Force(CISF).
A similar incident took place days ago, when a Vistara flight was delayed by three hours in Delhi after a passenger insisted on smoking in the plane.
