air india pee gate accused tells court elderly woman peed on herself

The man, accused of peeing on an elderly woman on an Air India flight mid-air, told a Delhi court that it was not him but the elderly woman who peed on herself.


The bizzare claim by a sacked banking executive, Shanka Mishra came in response to a notification from the sessions court regarding an application by the Delhi Police requesting custody in order to examine him. After a court denied the police’s request for custody, he was remanded to 14-day judicial remand on Saturday.

Four days later, a judge denied his request for bail after describing the claims against him as utterly vile and repugnant.


Any woman’s modesty would be offended by the purported deed alone. The accused’s outrageous behaviour has shocked the public and has to be condemned, the judge reprimanded him for remaining at large before a non-bailable warrant was issued on Wednesday.

Mishra’s attorneys didn’t bring up his most recent denial of urinating on the woman during the bail hearing, saying that his action was not motivated by sexual desire or intended to outrage the complainant’s modesty.


The lady who filed the complaint against Mishra claimed throughout the hearing that she was being threatened by those close to the accused.

She said that she frequently gets threatening texts in her inbox, saying Karma will hit her. The father of the defendant texted her before deleting the message. They are messaging her and then deleting them. This has to end, the woman’s attorneys said.

After the claims surfaced more than a month after the incident in late November, Mishra was taken into custody last week. He had been fired by US banking behemoth Wells Fargo and had spent days eluding law enforcement.

On November 26, Mishra allegedly urinated on the 72-year-old woman sat in business class when he was allegedly intoxicated during the flight from New York to New Delhi.

The woman protested to N Chandrasekaran, chairperson of the Tata Group, which owns Air India, and claimed that she was forced by the crew to accept a man’s apologies.

The airline claimed it had handled the event improperly and that it was revising its guidelines for providing alcohol on planes.

Air India’s CEO, Campbell Wilson, issued a statement in which he said that Air India accepts that it might have handled these problems better, both in the air and on the ground, and is committed to taking action.

After being under state control for many years, the airline was recently acquired by the Tata Group conglomerate, and its handling of the woman’s complaint has drawn harsh criticism.

The Indian aviation regulator also reprimanded the management for failing to report the event at the time and forewarned carriers to take stern action against unruly passengers.
