Scuffle on Thai Smile flight; case lodged against people involved

New Delhi: Jyotiraditya Scindia, the minister of civil aviation, announced on Thursday that a police report had been filed against those responsible for an altercation aboard a Thai Smile Airways flight from Bangkok to Kolkata.

"With regard to the scuffle between passengers onboard a Thai Smile Airways flight, a police complaint has been filed against those involved. Such behaviour is unacceptable," Scindia said in a tweet.

The minister's comments came soon after aviation security watchdog, the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), sought a report from the concerned authorities on the in-flight brawl which took place on a Bangkok-Kolkata flight of Thai Smile Airways in Bangkok.

Taking serious cognizance of a video of the incident, which went viral on social media, BCAS sought a detailed report on the matter, sources said.

The incident happened on December 26 and was caught on camera. It shows two individuals fighting despite attempts to break it up by the crew and other passengers.

The fight had broken out after a passenger had refused to follow safety procedures despite repeated requests by the crew members, even as the flight was readying to take off from Bangkok en route to Kolkata.
