Airport incident will be probed, says Raju

IndiGo had placed a ban on flying Reddy on late Thursday evening, which was followed by four more airlines - Air India, Jet Airways, SpiceJet and GoAir - also barring him.

Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju, who was present in the VIP lounge when the MP created a ruckus, refused to be dragged into the controversy. "We hope that such incidents will not take place in future and if it will take place then we will tackle the issue as soon as possible", said Sinha. "In support of the fellow carriers, Vistara has also taken a decision to impose flying ban on J C Diwakar Reddy", a Vistara spokesperson said.

The latest controversy was also not Reddy's first time creating a ruckus at an airport, as a video had emerged in October a year ago, of the MP manhandling employees at the Gannavaram Airport in Vijayawada. Raju has, however, refuted the allegations and said he will ensure that lawful outcomes follow.

Responding Indigo said that it is now investigating the incident.

The MP was apparently later allowed to board the same flight he meant to take, which was thus delayed beyond its departure time of 8.10 pm. Earlier also, he was involved in a similar incident at Gnnavaram Airport of Vijayawada where he had arrived 15 minutes before flight departure time.

Gaikwad was angry at a manager of Air India as he was not offered a business-class seat in a flight from the western city of Pune to the Indian capital, which had only economy-class seats, an incident that prompted authorities to mull stiff penalty to rein in unruly passengers. "AirAsia India does not tolerate abusive or unruly behaviour by passengers that puts the safety of other guests and crew members on board at risk", the airline said. He is also accused of pushing an IndiGo employee.

According to IndiGo airlines staff, the final boarding time for a domestic flight is 45 minutes before takeoff and the MP reportedly arrived 28 minutes after the closing time.

Earlier in the day, Raju refuted reports that he helped Reddy from getting a boarding pass.
