Gurgaon: A 22-year-old Spice Jet airhostess was allegedly molested by a senior pilot in the cockpit of a Delhi-bound flight, reports Times of India.

The incident took place on Saturday soon after the flight took off from Kolkata, said an airline official.  

An airline insider said the pilot called the airhostess into the cockpit and allegedly molested her. Shocked at the pilots misbehaviour, the airhostess ran out of the cockpit and informed a senior crew member.

Passengers had no clue about the incident but the crew was extremely angry with the pilot, said the airline official, speaking on condition of anonymity. A detailed report about the incident has been submitted to the airline Gurgaon office but the airhostess has not filed any criminal complaint.

The pilot was immediately taken off from flying duties and a senior airline executive, who confirmed the incident, said strict action would be taken against him. A panel of airline officials is probing the matter and the airline would terminate his services if he was found guilty.
