The accused’s father, Shyam Mishra, has claimed that the case against his son is “false”. “She (victim) had demanded payment and it was made. Don’t know what happened next. Must have demanded something that perhaps wasn’t met that upset her. Perhaps there was blackmailing, there must be something,” he said. “False case. My son had not slept for 30-35 hrs. After dinner, he might’ve consumed the drink given by the crew and then slept. From what I understand, he was questioned by airline staff after he woke up.”

Mishra said his son could not have committed such an offence. “I don’t think he would do it. She (victim) is a 72-year-old woman, she is like his mother. He (accused) is a 34-year-old man. How can he do it? He is married and has a daughter,” the father said. Asked about his son’s whereabouts, Shyam Mishra said he was not aware. “We are also trying to talk to him. I don’t know (where he is)… I just want facts should be told, what is being presented is away from truth,” he said. His son is accused of urinating on the elderly woman onboard an Air India flight between New York and Delhi in November last year.
