Attempt to strangle me on board Jet Airways flight, says Kanhaiya Kumar


Jawaharlal Nehru University students union president Kanhaiya Kumar on Sunday said a man tried to strangle him on a Jet Airways flight earlier in the day.

"Yet again, this time inside the aircraft, a man tries to strangulate me," Kanhaiya Kumar tweeted.

He alleged that the airline staff refused to take any action against the attacker.

"After the incident, Jet Airways staff completely refuses to take any action against the man who assaulted me.

"Basically Jet Airways sees no difference between someone who assaults and the person who is assaulted. They will deplane you, if you complain," he said.

The student leader was arrested on sedition charges on February 12 after allegedly raising anti-India slogans at the JNU campus. He was given bail after police failed to produce any evidence to back the charge.
