New Delhi, March 25: NSUI's All India Secretary Angellica Aribam on Tuesday, March 24 posted a series of tweets, depicting some men were harassing female passengers in the IndiGo Airlines.
The incident happened on March 24, Tuesday in IndiGo 6E-221 flight, where some men were clicking photos of an air hostess, when she was bending to fix things.

The airline said that the matter was being reported to police while it would hold a probe as well on its part.
"Two IndiGo passengers on board flight 6E-221 on March 24 from Delhi to Imphal via Guwahati were observed to be taking pictures/video of our crew and other passengers on board without permission," the airline said in a statement.
