Sena MP hits AI man with slipper 25 times, tears his shirt... brags!
Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad punched and hit 60-year-old Air India Duty Manager Shivkumar with his slippers 25 times and tore his shirt at IGI airport here on Thursday just because he could not travel business class in an all-economy flight.
"The MP turned violent, broke the duty manager's spectacles, tore his shirt, hit him with slippers," said Air India sources. According to the airline, Gaikwad was booked on an open ticket in business class with Air India which allows a passenger to take a flight on any date. The MP boarded the flight but refused to alight from the aircraft when it landed at IGI airport here.
This is when duty manager Shivkumar approached the MP to try and placate him. "He asked who is this MP and said he would complain to Modi. So I slapped him. I hit him 25 times with my sandal," said Gaikwad. "I a am Shiv Sena member, not of the BJP, to entertain abuses (hurled at me)," he said adding he "will not apologise". Gaikwad said he would also complain to the Lok Sabha Speaker about the incident.
