A 56-year-old man was arrested at the International (IGI) Airport here for sexually harassing a woman passenger on board an IndiGo flight, a senior police officer said on Sunday.

The incident occurred on Saturday evening on the flight that was on way to from Hyderabad.

Ramesh Chand, a resident of Rohini Sector-3, was arrested soon after the flight landed, after which he was taken to the Domestic Airport police station.

According to the FIR, the harassed woman, a resident of Hyderabad, said when the flight was taking off, she saw Chand, who was seated next to her, unzip his pants and start a lewd gesture.

"The woman immediately informed an air hostess about it and her seat was changed. When the flight landed at the airport, we received a complaint from the woman," the senior officer said.
