A Bangladeshi airline passenger was recently arrested for stripping naked, masturbating, and then attacking a flight attendant during a flight from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Dhaka, Bangladesh.
The passenger reportedly took his clothes off and started masturbating while watching pornographic videos on his laptop shortly after the Malindo Air flight OD162 departed from Kuala Lumpur.
The unnamed man, identified only as a foreign student at a Malaysian university, was forced to put his clothes back on after he was told by the cabin crew. However, he attempted to hug the flight’s female staff members while he made his way to the toilet. When the women resisted his advances, he became more aggressive and even attacked a flight attendant.
With the help of some passengers, members of the cabin crew were able to subdue him and have his hands tied up for the rest of the flight. The man also reportedly urinated on his seat, Star Online reports.
Without providing all the details, the airlines released a statement that a “disruptive passenger” had been tied up during the flight and was immediately arrested upon arrival. “The crew on board has followed the standard operating procedure in restraining the passenger from causing further disruption onboard the flight,” Malindo Air stated.
“The disruptive passenger was accompanied by Dhaka security team upon arrival and he has been put in jail by the authorities there. The airline will continue to stay vigilant to ensure passengers travel soundly.”
