Complaint against officer who called fellow passenger terrorist

A complaint has been registered against an intelligence officer for calling a person from Jammu and Kashmir terrorist onboard a Srinagar-bound flight. Passengers on the flight have also accused the official of threatening a fellow passenger. The incident took place onboard a GoAir flight that was coming from Delhi to Srinagar.

"We have registered a complaint and will forward it to his superiors who will decide whether or not action should be taken against the officer," said SP, Airport, Abdul Rashid Bhat.

Police sources say that a ruckus happened on G8-183 flight when a tall Kashmiri passenger, Ghulam Nabir Mir, was frequently adjusting his seat, D5. This irritated the official sitting next to him.

The official identified himself as an intelligence officer, called Mir a terrorist, and warned him of serious consequences once the flight landed at Srinagar.

The other Kashmiri passengers objected to the remark and upon landing, Mir and others complained against the official.
