NEW DELHI: A new twist to the IndiGo passenger manhandling case emerged on Wednesday as the airline said the apparent whistleblower, who shot the video, was the main culprit in the incident.

The airline made the revelation in its report which was submitted to the Ministry of Civil Aviation on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, Union Minister Jayant Sinha sought a report from budget carrier IndiGo regarding the incident at New Delhi airport last month, when a passenger was manhandled by the airline's staff.

The incident which took place on October 15 surfaced only on Tuesday after a video showed passenger Rajiv Katyal being manhandled by the airline's staff after a verbal altercation.

Katyal, who arrived from Chennai, was waiting for the passenger bus at the airport when the incident happened. It is not clear exactly who started the verbal altercation, according to IANS.
