Mangaluru: DGCA considering travel ban on boy, girl engaged in fun chat on airport security


Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (SS)

Mangaluru, Aug 16: Following the continuing investigation over the recent incident involving a boy and a girl who were set to board flights at the international airport here, it is learnt that the directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA) is considering imposition of a travel ban on the two of them for causing tension, confusion and inconvenience to passengers.

It may be recalled that the two were detained over their chat messages on security following a complaint lodged against them at Bajpe police station.

A case was taken up under section IPC 505 (1) (b) and (c) in Bajpe police station after a complaint from IndiGo flight authorities.

The two detained are Simran Tom (23) from Uttar Pradesh and Dipayan Maji (23) from Ghaziabad. Simran is currently pursuing her MA (HR) final year in Chennai while Diyapan has completed his education and is presently working in L&T as an engineer in Vadodara.

On Sunday, August 14, all the passengers were deplaned from the aircraft and the flight was intensely checked for any sabotage after a co-passenger had noticed one among the two detained receiving a text message as ‘U r da bomber’. The girl was waiting for her flight to go to Bengaluru while the boy was ready to fly to Mumbai.

Police sources said that both were friends and they spoke about the security just for fun.

    Absolute stupidity on part of these youngsters. There are many like them who are over smart and think that they can get away with anything. At a time when the world is becoming a difficult place to live in with threats of terrorism, sabotage etc, loose and unwanted talk like this is not called for. You cannot get away with it by saying that you were just fooling around. Yes, a ban is totally justifiable. Should be for a longer period though.

    Nowadays it's a trend among youngsters to use mostly slang while communicating amongst themselves; checkout the various slang synonyms for the prohibited word used; just like one would call a beautiful woman, a "sex bomb"! Please check out and decide for yourself!

    It’s ridiculous! Nobody should take peoples’ private chat so seriously. Instead the person who peeped into their chat should be banned.

    complete over-reaction. absolutely voyeuristic and uncivilised behaviour of the chap who snooped on another's chat? I suppose that is Indian culture and needs to be upheld.

    What about the nosy aunty/uncle? He/she is the real person requiring the ban. The boy and girl should file an invasion of privacy case against the the nosy aunty/uncle

    Many tragedies and accidents have been averted by alert citizens and many tragedies have happened when citizens have ignored warnings or kept available information to themselves. We are living in a difficult world today and nothing can be taken for granted. Precaution is always better than ignoring something and having to face consequences.

    Don't blame the co-paasenger. It could have been a real threat. If something had happened, we would have blamed the agencies. In today's world security must be top concern.

    All Air travellers must learn from this incident. Keep your jokes, fun & entertainment at a designated place and surroundings. Air security & safety is a concern for all travellers.

    Since they do not belong to regular blow up gang, can be let of with a warning. For sure they have learnt their lesson. They dont realise that security threat on airplanes is real deal in this new world thanksnto Bolts that even a harmless chat in airport is taken very seriously.

    Nowadays young people take everything in life easily. so it's a good lesson for them not to make fun of security issues it is there for a reason and everyone must respect and adhere to all rules laid down by aothorities. The safety of all passengers is the most important issue. if someone sees any unsafe act should report it to authorities. A correct action was taken by airport security personnel.

    DGCA should try doing something good for Mangalore Airport like not building it over a hill and make landing an aircraft impossible in Mangalore. Aircraft has to divert to kochi because these people couldn't get a proper place to build an airport. Hope you remember Air India

    In my opinion Ban is not necessary . They can sue the the fellow passenger for reading the the message with out their consent .

    The co-passenger should be detained for prying into other's phone and causing an alarm. The co-passenger should mind their own business and stop poking their nose in others messages.

    This entire episode looks like an intrusion into personal affairs of the couple.... Case must be booked on the lady who cunningly read the message and made a ruckus... If DGCA and CISF take such messages of nowadays youngsters they may have to ground more planes than flying....

    Fun, humor, jokes, fooling at a private place or among friends. They deserved for their kiddish behaviour. It's also a lesson for air travellers how to remain alert and follow some regulations in and around airport and on board.

    Much ado about nothing........... Just an inquisitive old lady who could not mind her business and caused confusion and flight delay. The boy and girl should file a FIR against her for the mental agony and delay costs to the airline.
