WASHINGTON(A1TV NEWS)In another ‘peegate’ controversy, an Indian official was identified as having urinated on a fellow passenger onboard New York-Delhi flight.

The accused named Aryan Vohra was caught urinating on a US passenger mid-air on an American Airlines flight on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, India’s aviation regulator, Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), has also sought a detailed report from the airline.

“American Airlines flight 292 with service from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Indira Gandhi International Airport (DEL) was met by local law enforcement upon arrival in DEL due to a disruptive customer.
