A 31-year-old Gurugram resident was arrested by the Sahar Police for allegedly molesting a female co-passenger aboard a Delhi-Mumbai flight. Tired of being repeatedly groped by the accused, the woman, who is a lawyer by profession, even got her seat changed after complaining to the pilot.

According to Hindustan Times, the man, Mohit Kanvar, was booked for molestation, after the pilot alerted the Sahar police and the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) following the plane's landing at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.
