In a grim reminder of the VVIP culture, Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad hit an Air India staff with his slipper over business class sitting issue.
"Yes, I hit him. He misbehaved with me," Gaikwad said when asked about his action.
Gaikwad was travelling from Pune to New Delhi when scuffle broke out over the sitting arrangement.
The MP claimed that his ticket was for business class but Air India provided him economy class.
"Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad hit an Air India staff member with his slipper over seating issues. We have constituted a team to probe the whole incident," Air India spokesperson said.
