On Saturday morning, police in Bengaluru apprehended Shankar Mishra on suspicion that he had urinated on a female passenger on an Air India flight. He was terminated from his business, Wells Fargo, on Friday.

Shankar Mishra, 34, was detained by Delhi Police on Saturday for reportedly urinating on a fellow passenger while under the influence of alcohol on board an Air India flight. Mishra, who was caught in Bengaluru and transferred to the Delhi police, allegedly committed the crime while flying from New York to New Delhi on Air India in November.

Wells Fargo, a large banking institution in the United States, fired Mishra on Friday after the event. The corporation released a statement explaining his termination, saying, “we find these claims profoundly unsettling” and that the company requires its workers to adhere to the highest standards of professional and personal conduct.

Who is Shankar Mishra?

Prior to his dismissal, Wells Fargo’s Mumbai unit hired Shankar Mishra as the vice president of operations (India). Neighbors in his Kamgar Nagar neighbourhood of Mumbai have known him as “Suraj” for the past two decades.

Newsroompost claims he attended the Mumbai-based private university SVKM’s Marsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) under the name ‘Suraj M.’ on LinkedIn.

Mishra has no criminal background, according to the Nehru Nagar police. He was not seen engaging in such conduct by his neighbours, either. His two-year-old daughter, wife, and elderly parents lived with him, they said.

The police issued a LoC for Mishra after hearing the allegations made by a female passenger on the November 26, 2022 Air India aircraft. A total of eight airline employees, including the pilot, were served summonses by the Delhi Police, and four search teams were sent out to various locations in Bengaluru, Mumbai, and Delhi in an effort to find the perpetrators.

The Delhi Police filed a FIR on Wednesday, citing a complaint by Air India, for sexual harassment and outraging the modesty of a woman. Sections 354 (sexual harassment), 294 (obscene act), 509 (statement, gesture, or act designed to insult the modesty of a woman), 510 (misconduct in public by an inebriated person), and section 23 (aircraft rules) of the Indian Penal Code were all cited against Mishra.

Also, the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) served notifications on the Delhi Police, the DGCA, and Air India, demanding to know what measures were taken to address the airline’s indifference.

Although search parties were dispatched to Mishra’s Kamgar Nagar, Kurla, Mumbai, home, they were unable to locate him. Authorities reported that Mishra’s family was not helping with the inquiry, so they called in the Mumbai Police to keep an eye on Mishra’s home.

And for the next 30 days, Mishra can’t board a flight with the company.
