Air India impasse: Delhi HC reprimands striking pilots

Delhi High Court
New Delhi, April 28: The Delhi High Court today (April 28) came down heavily on striking Air India pilots for defying its order to resume work as the national carrier management moved the court seeking contempt proceedings against the pilots.

Justice Gita Mittal castigated the pilots during a brief hearing of contempt plea by national carrier's management.

"What is your defence with regard to non-compliance of yesterday's order to call off the strike?," Justice Mittal asked Indian Commercial Pilots'' Association counsel Sanjay Ghosh.

As Ghosh sought to explain to the court that some of the agitating pilots had gone to meet the AI management but none of them was heard by the management, Justice Mittal remarked, "You have breached the court's order. It is very serious."
