Air India hostess accuses senior management of sexual harassment


An Air India hostess has accused a senior executive of sexual harassment, claiming that the airline authorities have refused to deal with the matter seriously.

Air India hostess accuses senior management of sexual harassment

In a letter addressed to Union Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu, which she posted on Twitter, the lady has claimed that a senior executive has repeatedly sexually harassed and tortured her for the last six years, and the management is considering rewarding him instead of taking any punitive action.

Responding to the letter, Civil aviation minister Suresh Prabhu has now asked the Air India's chairman and managing director to immediately address the issue and has also said that a separate committee will be formed to probe the matter if required.

The woman said that she would reveal the name of the executive if she gets an audience with the aviation minister.

The air hostess maintained that she had lodged a complaint with Air India last September and had written to then CMD of the airline, but "none was forthcoming".
