What Actually Happened?
Maanvi, an influencer on Instagram, utilized her account @milliondollabod to share a concerning video. In this video, she recounted the entire incident and unveiled the individual responsible.
According to Maanvi, he employed his camera to record her actions during the interaction between the male passenger and the flight attendant. She notified the SpiceJet crew, leading the team to examine the passenger’s phone.
The phone contained images of the flight attendant’s undergarments and legs, along with videos featuring Maanvi, who was seated beside him.
In one of the videos, the flight attendant was observed urging the blogger to record the individual responsible and unveil his actions on social media.
He appeared unperturbed despite the crew’s indications towards the passenger and their request for him to remain for airline security.
A few months ago, a SpiceJet flight from Delhi (DEL) to Hyderabad (HYD) faced a similar incident in which two passengers disembarked from the aircraft at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport.
This action was taken after one of the passengers was alleged to have engaged in inappropriate physical contact with a cabin crew member. Subsequently, displayed disruptive behavior before the flight’s departure.
Further, the airport security personnel took custody of both individuals involved in the incident. The Delhi Police then initiated a case in relation to the event.
