- Indian passengers fight on a flight arriving to India from Thailand
- The incident was filmed on a Thai Smile Airway from Bangkok to Kolkata
A video has gone viral on the internet which shows serious mid-air altercations taking place in a flight from Thailand to India.
The video clip has been doing rounds showing brawl breaking out between a bunch of Indian passengers on board a Thai Smile Airway.
Going by the reports the brawl was filmed when the flight was travelling from Bangkok to Kolkata on Tuesday, the viral clip begins with two men arguing with each other while standing next to a flight attendant, who attempts to defuse the situation.
The verbal quarrelling soon turns serious as the men start shoving and pointing at each other. One of them is heard saying “haath neeche kar” which translates to lower your hand.
Within seconds, the altercation turns serious and both men starts getting physical forcing fellow passengers along with the cabin crew not to ignore them.
The man in the grey sweatshirt takes his glasses off and proceeds to rain slaps on the man in the black t-shirt, who just defends himself from the attacks without fighting back.
A few moments and the passengers standing next to the man in the grey sweatshirt start landing blows on the guy in the black shirt as well.
This happens for several seconds even when fellow passengers along with the cabin crew plead with the man in the grey sweatshirt to calm down.
The brawl only comes to an end when a flight attendant intervenes and separates the two men.
After the incident went viral, a senior official from India was quoted saying, “It’s a foreign registered Aircraft. We have no powers/oversight. Our laws do not apply to them. State of registry (Thailand) has to take appropriate action”.
The clip has now been widely circulated on the micro-blogging platform Twitter as well as other social media platforms including Facebook and Instagram. A lot of users said that the passengers must be booked for disturbing the peace on an airplane,
Unbelievable!! Looks like a cabin full of rowdies. Is it a flight to Kolkata by any chance?— Aprameya Mukherjee (@AprameyaMukh) December 28, 2022
Whatever be the cause, a group of people must not be allowed to rough up someone that also on a flight. It's just bullying, must be behind bars.— मुनिवर (@cut_nd_dried) December 28, 2022
Another user wrote, “We seriously decided that we bring shame to our country, feels bad seeing this behaviour. I personally noticed in various international flight our behaviour is like we owns the airline, don’t care about rules and general manners. Need to change our mindset,” on Twitter.
