A male passenger on a Malindo Air flight stripped naked, put on porn, then began to masturbate after which he attacked an air hostess.
The 20-year-old student began to misbehave after the flight left Kuala Lumpur Airport, Malaysia. Without respect for other passengers, he refused to put on his clothes when cabin crew told him to after he stripped. Instead, he turned violent.
As he made his way to the plane’s toilet, he reportedly tried to hug an air hostess and become aggressive when she rejected him. Passengers and other cabin crew intervened at this point and tied his hands up with a piece of cloth, restraining him for the rest of the flight.
He was later arrested when the plane landed at Shahjalal Airport in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
A passenger claiming to be on the plane said the man was stark naked as he watched porn while “ignoring all those around him”.
“The cabin crew approached him and politely asked him to put on his clothes. He complied with their request. A short while later there was some commotion at the toilet area and it turned out that he was harassing a stewardess,” the eyewitness said.
In a statement, a Malindo Air spokesman said: “The crew on board has followed the standard operating procedure in restraining the passenger from causing further disruption onboard the flight. The disruptive passenger was accompanied by Dhaka security team upon arrival and he has been put to jail by the authorities there. The airline will continue to stay vigilant to ensure passengers travel soundly.”
