Yesterday, a fight broke out between 2 females passengers onboard a Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) flight. Things got so heated that PIA kicked those 2 females, who were traveling on the business class flight, from the plane following their scuffle.
Eyewitnesses and officials from ASF said:
1 middle-aged woman, who was boarding the flight, started yelling at another young woman at the entrance of the plane. She then proceeded to attack the younger lady inside the plane. The reasons were not clear as to how the fight started.
The people present in the PIA when they kicked 2 females off, said:
The middle-aged woman launched an assault and allegedly tore the clothes of the 20-year old victim. She beat her and horrifyingly enough, even got her hands on a glass object from a trolley in the plane, attacking the victim with it.
The eyewitnesses has said:
“A verbal argument broke out when both passengers were entering the plane. However, things turned messy inside the plane as the verbal spat turned into a fistfight. The victim was accompanied by her husband as well however he decided to refrain from getting involved in the matter.”
“the victim is believed to be a relative of her attacker as well as the pilot flying the airplane. After getting verbally abused, the victim tried to make her way to the cockpit but was stopped by the attacker as she beat up the victim again.”
Due to this incident, the flight, which was bound to take off from Lahore, was delayed by 35 minutes.
PIA personnel removed both passengers from the plane and handed them over to the Airport Security Force (ASF). However, no charges were pressed against any of the arrested individuals by ASF.
