Ahmedabad: Five drunk men held for creating ruckus on flight | Ahmedabad News – Times of India


AHMEDABAD: Five inebriated men from Mysore were arrested by the city police in the wee hours of Sunday for allegedly creating ruckus in a Bengaluru-Ahmedabad flight. They also allegedly misbehaved with the crew members.
Prakash Makwana, a Behrampura resident, who works as security supervisor with Indigo Airlines, said in his FIR with the airport police that he received a message about the drunk passengers through the Air Traffic Controller (ATC) late on Saturday night.
“I got a message from Ahmedabad airport ATC at around 11.45pm on Saturday that five passengers travelling in Indigo flight number 6423 from Bengaluru to Ahmedabad were drunk and were not respecting the rules of conduct inside the flight,” Makwana stated in his FIR.
He then called up the police control room and a team of airport police began an inquiry.
“There was a group of seven passengers, of whom five were drunk. They were Manjunath Gauda, 61, Ravish Gauda, 54; Santosh Gauda, 41; Harish Gauda, 53, and Narayan Shrinivasan, 50,” said an officer of airport police.
After the flight landed at Ahmedabad airport, each of the five passengers underwent a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test after which it was established that they were drunk. “They had been misbehaving with the crew and did not follow the rules of conduct explained by the pilot and the crew members. They also disturbed nearly 120 other passengers in the aircraft,” said the police officer. Airport police booked the five men under the Prohibition Act and began an investigation. They were released on bail later on Sunday.
