The perpetrator begged me to not lodge a complaint, saying he was a family man, the victim said
The woman who complained about a male co-passenger urinating on her during an Air India flight in November had informed the crew that she did not want to see his face and was "stunned" when the offender was brought before her and "started crying and profusely apologising".
According to the Delhi Police's FIR against the accused, he also begged her to not lodge a complaint, saying he was a family man and did not wish his wife and child to be affected by the incident.
The victim alleged that despite her unwillingness, she was forced to confront the accused and negotiate with him, further disorienting her, according to the FIR registered on Wednesday based on the victim's complaint to Air India.
According to the FIR, shortly after lunch was served and the lights were switched off onboard AI 102 on November 26, the inebriated male passenger seated in Business Class seat 8A walked to the elderly woman's seat, unzipped his pants and urinated on her.
He kept standing there until the person sitting next to the woman told him to go back, at which point he "staggered back to his seat".
"I immediately got up to notify the stewardess of what had happened. My clothes, shoes, and bag were soaked in urine. The bag contained my passport, travel documents, and currency. The flight staff refused to touch them, sprayed my bag and shoes with disinfectant, took me to the bathroom, and gave me a set of airline pajamas and socks.
"I asked the staff for a change of seat but was told that no other seats were available. However, another business class passenger who had witnessed my plight and was advocating for me pointed out that there were seats available in first class," the victim was quoted as saying in the FIR.
