In the video, which has gone viral on various social media platforms, the woman is seen confronting the duo and taking them to the police outpost at the airport. The men were also seen apologising and touching the feet of the woman on her instructions adding the incident occurred on Saturday midnight.
According to reports, they were booked for misbehaving and later let off as the staffer didn't file a case against them as they were students.
Following the newsbreak, IndiGo issued a statement and said, "In an unfortunate incident last night (Sunday, November 19), two men at the Hyderabad airport were handed over to the local police on grounds of misbehaviour with an IndiGo female ground staff. The incident occurred when our staff member was walking towards the airport to report for her morning shift. While walking, she observed two men following her from the parking area. As she kept walking and was around the pre-paid taxi counter, one of the men tried coming closer to her. She immediately approached a traffic cop who was standing nearby. The traffic cop took them to the police station outpost at the airport. Our staff member informed the police that both the men appeared to be under the influence of alcohol.
As soon as the two men were brought to the police station, they immediately started apologising to our staff member. Basis their apology, our staff member did not file a formal complaint with the police. They were kept in police custody for a few hours after which they were released since no formal complaint was registered."
