In her second tweet, Sindhu claimed that one of the ground staffs named ‘Ajeetesh’ behaved very badly with her.

“Ground staff (skipper) mr ajeetesh behaved very badly and rudely with me. When the air hostess Ms ashima tried to advise him to behave properly with the passenger (me) but to my surprise he behaved very rudely with her. If this type of people work for a rupted (reputed) airline like indigo they will spoil their reputation @IndiGo6E,” she tweeted.
