SpiceJet food supervisor arrested for slapping CISF personnel at Jaipur Airport, airline to take legal action against the ASI claiming he sexually harassed her

SpiceJet said that it is taking immediate legal action in this serious case of sexual harassment against its female employee and has approached the local police

A female SpiceJet employee was arrested today for slapping a CISF officer at Jaipur Airport. Anuradha Rani, employed as a food supervisor with the airline, was prevented from entering the airport through the vehicle gate of the airport, which led to an argument that escalated to her slapping Assistant Sub Inspector Giriraj Prasad. While CISF claimed that Rani didn’t have proper permission to use the gate and a case was filed against her for the assault, now the Spicejet has accused the CISF official of sexual harassment against its employee.

The incident took place at around 4 AM at Jaipur Airport when Anuradha Rani was attempting to enter the airport through the “vehicle gate” with other staff when ASI Giriraj Prasad stopped her for not having proper permission to use that gate. He then asked her to go through security screening at the gate designated for airline crew. But at that time no female personnel of CISF were available at that point, and the ASI called for a female colleague.

But during this time, the situation escalated, and Anuradha Rani slapped Giriraj Prasad, which was caught on camera.

After this, a case was registered against Rani under sections 121 (1) (voluntarily causing hurt to deter a public servant from his duty) and 132 (assaulting a public servant) of the Bharat Nyaya Sanhita (BNS). The SpiceJet employee was subsequently arrested.

However, later SpiceJet issued a statement defending its employee, accusing the CISF personnel of misbehavior and sexual harassment. The airline said that Anuradha Rani was escorting a catering vehicle and she has a valid airport entry pass issued by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), which authorizes her to use the gate. As per SpiceJet, she was subjected to inappropriate and unacceptable language by the CISF personnel, including asking her to come and meet him after his duty hours at his home.

The statement said, “SpiceJet is taking immediate legal action in this serious case of sexual harassment against its female employee and has approached the local police. We stand firmly by our employee and are committed to providing her with full support.”
