According to reports, the incident took place at the time when the passenger was waiting for the coach that would take the passengers from the tarmac to the terminal. Mr Katyal, visibly looked agitated and seemed to be disappointed and thus was arguing over the late arrival of the coach. Over which the ground staff asked him to refrain from using curses. But the video showed the passenger telling them that they should focus on doing a better job rather than moving passengers from one spot to another. As the passengers finally started boarding the coach, a ground staff restrain Mr Katiyal from boarding over the alleged cursing. Seething in rage, Mr Katiyal tries to attack a staff member screaming, “How dare you.” In the scuffle that follows, he is finally pinned down on the tarmac, the airline staff holding him by his neck on the ground, as the passenger fights back, swinging his arms wildly. The two are then separated and held back by other staff members present there. It is not clear yet who shot the video.
