    Stand-Up Comedian Kunal Kamra Slaps Legal Notice On IndiGo Demanding Rs 25 Lakh Compensation

    IndiGo, SpiceJet, Air India and GoAir have banned Kunal Kamra from taking their flights after he posted a video clip on Twitter, where he is seen asking Goswami if he is a "coward or a journalist"

    Popular stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra has issued a legal notice to Indigo Airlines which had suspended him from flying with the airlines for a period of six months after he allegedly heckled TV journalist Arnab Goswami aboard one of its planes from Mumbai to Lucknow.

    Kamra demanded a compensation of Rs 25,00,000 on account of the “mental pain and agony” suffered by him as well as losses incurred on account of cancellation of his shows and programmes in India as well as abroad due to the suspension on his flying.

    “You’re love & support is helping me go legal against @IndiGo6E. Also Lawmen & White have taken this fight to court for me as special case, To all artists out there don’t fear there are enough good people in society to always support the constitution…,” he tweeted.

    IndiGo, SpiceJet, Air India and GoAir have banned Kamra from taking their flights after he posted a video clip on Twitter, where he is seen asking Goswami if he is a “coward or a journalist”.

    Union Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri also wrote, “Offensive behaviour designed to provoke & create disturbance inside an aircraft is absolutely unacceptable & endangers safety of air travellers. We are left with no option but to advise other airlines to impose similar restrictions on the person concerned.”

    Kamra demanded IndiGo to revoke the suspension with immediate effect; to tender an unconditional apology in print, broadcast and social media platforms and to take action against the errant officials responsible for imposing the instant ban in abrogation of the DGCA CARs as notified under Rule 133A entailing imposition of penalty under S. No. 13 of Category III of Schedule VI of the Aircraft Rules, 1937.
