'Masturbating' Man Held for Sexually Harassing Co-Passenger on Flight



New Delhi: A 56-year-old man was arrested at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport on Saturday for allegedly sexually harassing a woman passenger onboard an IndiGo flight.

In her complaint, the woman alleged that shortly after she took her seat in the Hyderabad-Delhi flight, her co-passenger unzipped his pants and started masturbating. The woman immediately called the air-hostess, following which her seat was changed.

When the flight landed at the IGI Airport, the woman lodged a formal complaint.

The man, identified as Rohini resident Ramesh Chand, was arrested under IPC sections 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and 345A (sexual harassment) at Domestic Airport Police Station.
