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.

In another tweet, Sindhu urged the airline to speak to the air hostess, Ashima and get the details about the incident. “Please speak to Ms Ashima she wil explain you in detail.????????,” she added.

According to reports, the ground staff apparently objected to her carrying her kit-bag which had her badminton racquets inside it.

Following the complaint by Sindhu, the airlines replied on Twitter, saying that they would like to get in touch with her regarding the issue. “Hi! We’d like to speak with you. Kindly confirm if we may contact you on your registered number with us and share a convenient time to speak via DM so we may contact you,” it tweeted.
