A woman who travelled by an AirAsia India flight has alleged that she was sexually harassed by three crew members, days after the airline filed a complaint with the police and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) against her for being a “disruptive passenger”.AirAsia India has denied the charge and said it dealt with the incident as per laid down procedure.

The woman in an FIR with the police alleged that a flight steward made “unwelcome physical advances” onboard and spoke rudely to her after she complained about an unclean washroom in the plane while travelling from Ranchi to Bengaluru via Hyderabad on November 3.AirAsia India, however, said in a statement that the passenger verbally abused a senior cabin crew after she was asked to switch off her mobile phone and filed a complaint with the Airport Police against her when the plane landed in Bengaluru as well as informed the DGCA as per “standard operating procedures followed for disruptive passengers”.
