He was released without charge…just like his phone.

A man was removed from a plane after he tried to access the cockpit to charge his phone.

The incident occurred on an IndiGo flight from Mumbai to Kolkata on Monday.

It’s reported the ‘unruly’ passenger went to enter the cockpit before takeoff, stating that he needed to charge his phone.

It’s believed the man in his mid 30s was drunk and a first time flyer.

He was kicked off the plane and arrested by police but released without charge.

In a statement, IndiGo said:

“While an IndiGo aircraft being on the ground an unruly passenger tried to enter the cockpit stating that his mobile needs to be charged”.

“Following standard operating procedures the captain … initiated the offloading of the passenger on grounds of security violation.”
