Air France Manager Charged In Passenger Death Case

Mon Sep 29, 2003 5:30 am

NEW DELHI: A city court has framed charges against an Air France official for alleged negligence leading to the death of a passenger who was left unattended at Indira Gandhi International airport for almost 11 hours after he developed chest pain.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate VK Maheshwari framed charges under Section 304 A (causing death by rash and negligent act) against Opender Nath Kaul, who was duty manager of Air France at the IGI Airport, observing that there was prima facie evidence for the same.

Kaul allegedly had not arranged medical assistance for the passenger Ram Sarwan, who was offloaded from an Air France flight after he complained of chest pain.

Finally he was taken to the Safdarjung hospital some 10 hours after he was off-loaded from the plane, only to be declared brought dead.

Jeez... 11 hours at Delhi Airport is enough to kill anyone.
