Air India writes letter to Delhi Police over inaction in Gaikwad issue


New Delhi, April 20, 2017: The Air India officials have written a letter to the Delhi police asking why action has not been taken against Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad who had assaulted a staffer of the airline.

An FIR was filed in the matter, following the incident on March 23.

Sources said, the letter has been written by the CMD of Air India Ashwani Lohani to the Commissioner of Police, wherein he has asked why there is a delay in taking action against the MP.

The airline is understood to have said that the morale of the employees is being impacted as no action has been initiated against the MP despite nearly a month after the incident, he added.

However, there was no official comment from Air India or the Delhi police.

Gaikwad is accused to have assaulted an Air India staffer inside an aircraft at the Delhi airport on March 23. The national carrier, as well as other domestic airlines, then barred him from taking their flights.

Earlier this month, the ban was revoked after the MP wrote a letter to Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju expressing regret over the incident.
