The accident is not Aditya Narayan's first scuffle with the law. In October last year, Narayan landed in trouble after he misbehaved with a staff member of the budget passenger carrier, IndiGo.
According to the airline, Narayan was asked to pay Rs 13,000 for the excess baggage he was carrying on the Raipur-Mumbai flight, which he blatantly refused and thereafter used "unparliamentary language" with a female staff member. Narayan, however, apologised later and avoided charges.
