NEW DELHI: A police complaint has been filed against those involved in a midair scuffle onboard a Thai flight enroute from Bangkok to Kolkata, Union aviation minister Jyotiraditya Scindia said.
He tweeted that such behaviour is “unacceptable”.
A few passengers onboard a Thai Smile Airways plane from Bangkok to Kolkata were reportedly involved in a scuffle earlier this week.

A video clip of the scuffle inside the aircraft was shared widely on social media on Wednesday. In the clip, a man could be seen being slapped multiple times by a few co-passengers.
The Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS) on Thursday filed a police complaint regarding the scuffle.
The security watchdog said the police has already started its investigation and further action will follow.
According to sources, the airline in a report submitted to aviation regulator DGCA said the scuffle started sometime after a passenger refused to return his reclining seat to the straight position despite requests from the cabin crew, and that there was no serious injury to any passenger.
