On Friday, the High Court of Delhi denied to hear comedian Kunal Kamra’s petition challenging the flying ban imposed on him by IndiGo, Air Vistara & other airlines after he allegedly heckled a television journalist Arnab Goswami in Jan, news agency reported.
According to news agency, the Delhi High Court disapproved of Kunal Kamra’s heckling Arnab Goswami on board a flight & said: “this kind of behaviour cannot be permitted”.
On Jan 28, IndiGo banned Kamra for heckling Goswami aboard its Mumbai-Lucknow flight. Civil aviation Minister Hardeep Puri had then advised airlines to not entertain such behaviour.
Air India, GoAir & SpiceJet also followed suit after that.
On Friday, Air Vistara became the latest airline to ban Kamra after an IndiGo inquiry found him guilty of heckling Goswami. The airline wrote to Kamra about the ban.
Vistara spokesperson said that “Based on the order passed by an internal committee constituted by InterGlobe Aviation Ltd. in compliance with the respective CAR (civil aviation rules) & following due process, we have placed the passenger on our no-fly list until April 27, 2020″.
On Friday, Kunal Kamra tweeted about the ban by Air Vistara.
Mr Kamra said, “Air Vistara has also banned me now till the 27th April, following orders like they show… at a time where no one can fly, all I want to say is, neither am I sorry nor am I surprised, nor am I suffering…”.
