Authorities have identified the man who defecated on an elderly passenger on an Air India aircraft

A look out circular (LOC) has been issued against the accused in the Air India urination incident as he was not cooperating in the matter, a Delhi Police official said on Friday.

The official further said that only four crew members have joined the investigation so far, others will be joining the probe today.

Earlier on Thursday, Delhi Police wrote a letter to the immigration authority seeking the issuance of an LOC.

The accused person has been identified as S Mishra, a resident of Mumbai.

The accused, in an inebriated condition, urinated on his co-passenger, a senior citizen in her seventies, in business class on an Air India flight from New York to New Delhi on November 26, last year.

Delhi Police earlier said that the man who allegedly urinated on an elderly woman co-passenger on board an Air India flight is a resident of Mumbai and will be arrested at the earliest.

“The accused is a resident of Mumbai, but his possible location is in some other state and the police team has reached there. We will arrest the accused at the earliest,” said Delhi Police.

The Police on Wednesday filed an FIR in the shocking incident based on a complaint by Air India.

The police have registered an FIR in the matter under sections 354, 509, and 510 of the Indian Penal Code and Section 23 of the Indian Aircraft Act. Both the accused and the victim are from outside Delhi.

The victim, in her complaint filed on Wednesday, has said that she wanted the man arrested but the “crew brought the offender” before her against her wishes and he profusely apologised so that no complaint is filed against him.

In her complaint to ‘Grievance Air Sewa’, the woman narrated the entire incident in detail and said the man “unzipped his pants and urinated on me and kept standing there until the person sitting next to me tapped him and told him to go back to his seat”.

She alleged that the Air India crew was “deeply unprofessional” and was “not proactive in managing a very sensitive and traumatic situation”.

“I would like to submit a complaint about my appalling experience travelling with on Air India Business Class Flight AI102, Seat 9A, from JFK to New Delhi on 26 November 2022. During the course of the flight, shortly after lunch was served and the lights were switched off, a male business class passenger seated in 8A walked to my seat, completely inebriated. He unzipped his pants and urinated on me and kept standing there until the person sitting next to me tapped him and told him to go back to his seat, at which point he staggered back to his seat. I immediately got up to notify the stewardess of what had happened. My clothes, shoes and bag were soaked in urine,” she said.
