Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad, the Lok Sabha MP from Maharashtra’s Osmanabad seat (R), slapped and hit 60-year-old duty manager R Sukumar (L) “25 times” with his sandal.

New Delhi: The Delhi Police today registered an FIR against Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad for assaulting an Air India staffer and transferred the case to its Crime Branch.

A case has been registered under sections 308 (attempt to commit culpable homicide), 355 (assault or criminal force with intent to dishonour person) of IPC, said Dependra Pathak, Delhi Police’s chief spokesperson and special commissioner (operations).

“We are transferring the case to Crime Branch for a thorough probe,” he said.

Gaikwad, the Lok Sabha MP from Maharashtra’s Osmanabad seat, slapped and hit 60-year-old duty manager R Sukumar “25 times” with his sandal when the official persuaded him to disembark after the plane landed at the IGI airport here from Pune.

The MP refused to alight, holding up the aircraft for over 40 minutes yesterday.

Two complaints were received in this regard- – one from Air India and the other from Sukumar.

Yesterday, the Delhi Police said they were seeking legal opinion on the matter and the FIR was lodged today after obtaining the sane.
