Jyotiraditya Scindia saw the video and remarked, “looking into it No tolerance will be shown for such risky behavior.”
Bobby Kataria can be seen lighting a cigarette inside an airplane and taking a few puffs in a video that is becoming viral on social media.
“Balvinder Kataria took a SpiceJet aircraft to get from Dubai to New Delhi. On January 23, he arrived in Delhi. His Instagram and Facebook pages don’t include any videos. Aviation security took action earlier, “According to the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security, ANI.
When the Spicejet video was brought to their attention in January 2022, a spokesman indicated that the subject had already been examined.
“This is in response to a social media video showing a passenger smoking inside a SpiceJet airplane. When the video was brought to our attention in January 2022, the incident had already been properly investigated, and the airline had also reported it to the Udyog Vihar police station in Gurugram. The footage was recorded on January 20, 2022, as passengers boarded aircraft SG 706 from Dubai to Delhi, according to the inquiry. The aforementioned passenger and his fellow travelers recorded the video in the 21st row as the cabin crew was focused on finishing the onboarding process. Nobody on board, not even the crew, was aware of the act.
“According to Spice Jet officials, the incident happened while the plane was boarding. Since the airport is not actually in Gurugram, the Gurugram Police are not in charge of it. Therefore, Gurugram Police should not take any further action “said the Commissioner.
Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) said on Twitter: “A passenger is seen smoking onboard an airplane in a deceptive video that circulates on social media and claims there was a security breach. Those videos are seven months old. In reality, the passengers had gotten aboard a plane bound for Delhi from Dubai. Airlines also lodged a police case upon arrival.”
Meanwhile, Bobby Kataria clarified as follows: “The biography I’m in is still in production. The same shooting video has gained popularity on social media. In a demo jet in Dubai, I was smoking during the photo shoot.”
