19 July, New Delhi
IndiGo today lifted fly ban on Telugu Desam Party (TDP) MP Diwakar Reddy imposed last month for alleged aggressive and abusive behaviour against its staff.
In a statement, an Indigo official said, “The issue is amicably resolved and IndiGo has decided to lift the ban with immediate effect. Reddy is withdrawing the case he has filed.”
The decision was taken at a meeting between Indigo officials and Reddy hosted by senior Member of Parliament YS Chaudhary.
Last month, Reddy got into a verbal spat with IndiGo ground staff at Visakhapatnam airport and threw a printer kept at the airline’s counter after he was informed that boarding for his flight to Hyderabad had closed.
The other domestic airlines followed IndiGo and decided not to fly the MP.
