Air India Bans Accused for 4 Months In Urination Incident

Guwahati: The airlines have placed a four-month ban on Shankar Mishra, who is accused of peeing on a woman while aboard an Air India trip from New York to New Delhi.

Mishra was taken into custody by the Delhi Police in Bengaluru on January 6. He allegedly peed on a 70-year-old woman who was inebriated while travelling in business class on an Air India trip on November 26 last year.

Delhi Police had filed a First Information Report (FIR) against him on January 4 in response to a complaint made by the woman to Air India under sections 354, 509, and 510 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 23 of the Indian Aircraft Act. The victim and the accused are both from locations other than Delhi.

Following the incident, US-based financial services corporation Wells Fargo dismissed Shankar Mishra from his position.

“Wells Fargo holds employees to the highest standards of professional and personal behaviour and we find these allegations deeply disturbing. This individual has been terminated from Wells Fargo. We are cooperating with law enforcement and ask that any additional inquiries be directed to them,” the company said in a statement.
