The liquid has not yet settled on the Air India New York to Delhi peeing incident, and here is another one. Another drunk man urinated on the blanket of a woman passenger just 10 days after the New York-Delhi flight and the crew let him go after a written apology from him.

And with that, the mid-air pisser's club seems to have gotten a new member now, after the man accused of peeing on the New York to Delhi November 26 flight was identified as a businessman, Shekhar Mishra. 


What happened: Officials told PTI today, January 5, that the mid-air urination incident on the Paris-Delhi flight did not see the crew pressing penal charges because the man tendered a written apology to them. As of now, it is not clear what class the passengers were travelling in.

  • It was onboard Air India flight 142 to Paris to Delhi on December 6 that the incident happened.
  • The pilot of the aircraft reported the matter to the Air Traffic Control (ATC) at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport.
  • The male passenger was then apprehended.
  • The flight landed around 9.40 am at the Delhi airport. 
  • The cabin crew informed airport security that the male passenger was "under the influence of alcohol and he was not following the instructions of the cabin crew and he later peed on a blanket of an onboard lady passenger", said airport officials.

The man was then allowed to leave: As soon as he deboarded, the male passenger was apprehended by the CISF (Central Industrial Security Force).

He was then allowed to leave after the two passengers -- the man and the lady on whose blanket he had urinated -- had a "mutual compromise" and the accused tendered a "written apology", the airport officials said.

  • The lady passenger had initially made a written complaint,
  • but she refused to file a police case.

As a result, the male passenger was allowed to go by the airport security after clearing immigration and customs formalities.

On the heels of Air India New York-Delhi incident: The Paris-Delhi flight incident happened on December 6, just 10 days after the New York-Delhi episode of November 26. The businessman allegedly urinated on an elderly woman co-passenger on the flight.

The Air India crew allegedly brushed it off as 'resolved' and the elderly woman had to write to Tata chairperson N Chandrasekaran about her ordeal onboard the New York-Delhi flight. Only after she wrote the letter to Chandrasekaran that the incident came to be known.

The Delhi Police has now registered an FIR in the November 26 incident, based on a complaint by the victim to Air India, and has formed several teams to nab the accused.

Shekhar Mishra, the businessman, is meanwhile untraceable.
