BJP's Tejasvi Surya accused of opening emergency exit door of flight

On December 10 of last year, Tejasvi Surya allegedly opened the emergency exit door of an IndiGo aircraft before to takeoff at the Chennai airport.

He is the national president of the BJP Yuva Morcha and the party’s MP from Bengaluru South.

Following some media coverage of the incident, the airline issued a statement on Tuesday, more than a month after it occurred.

While Surya was mentioned in the reports, IndiGo did not mention anyone in its statement.

The statement reads, “a passenger travelling from Chennai to Tiruchirapalli on Dec 10, 2022, accidentally opened the emergency exit during the boarding process."
