Jet Airways apologises for calling passenger 'bloody Indian'
Jet Airways on Wednesday issued an apology to the guest regretting the incident and also said that will update the guest with result of investigation.
''Concerned pilot remains de-rostered since day of event, pending results of full-fledged internal investigation that's underway,'' the statement said. "The airline has initiated an investigation based on inputs from guest concerned, departments and agencies," it added.
The Punjab tweaker, who is currently playing for the Indian Premier League side Mumbai Indians, took to Twitter to reveal that the pilot, named Bernd Hoesslin, "physically assaulted a lady and abused a physically challenged man" besides calling them "bloody Indians".
In a series of tweets, the off-spinner, popularly known as the 'Turbanator' hit out at the airline's pilot for disrespecting an Indian despite himself making his living on Indian soil.
Demanding strict action against the pilot, the 36-year-old cricketer wrote: "Strict action must be taken & such things should not be allowed or tolerated in r country... #proudtobeindian let's get together and sort this."
A complaint was also lodged on April 4 at the Sahar International Airport police station.
