A controversial incident unfolded at Jaipur Airport on Thursday when a female SpiceJet security staff member allegedly slapped a male CISF personnel during a dispute over mandatory screening procedures. Following the altercation, the woman was arrested, and a case was registered against her.

According to a senior CISF official, the incident began when the female employee became agitated after being asked to undergo screening at an entrance without any female CISF personnel present. This led to the alleged physical confrontation where she reportedly slapped the on-duty CISF personnel.


A SpiceJet spokesperson described the incident as unfortunate, asserting that their female security staff member, who possessed a valid airport entry pass issued by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), was subjected to inappropriate language by the CISF personnel. The spokesperson claimed that the CISF personnel used unacceptable language, including asking her to meet him at his home after his duty hours.

In response, the spokesperson stated, “Today, an unfortunate incident occurred at Jaipur Airport involving a SpiceJet female security staff member and a male CISF personnel. While escorting a catering vehicle at the steel gate, our female security staff member, who had a valid airport entry pass issued by the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), India’s civil aviation security regulator, 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 airline has taken immediate legal action, filing a serious case of sexual harassment against the CISF personnel and involving local police. “We stand firmly by our employee and are committed to providing her with full support,” the SpiceJet spokesperson added.
