Drunk women create security scare at Mumbai airport

DNA reports a group of drunk women caused chaos at the departure gate of Terminal 2C at Mumbai Sahar airport, early on Friday. They broke champagne bottles in their drunken stupor, forcing authorities to raise the alarm.

At about 6am on December 12, the group of five or six foreigners was waiting for a flight near the departure terminal. “They were scheduled to take a flight to Goa and were very drunk,” a Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) official said. “The women were carrying three champagne bottles in their hand.”

Following an altercation between themselves, the women began flinging the bottles at each other. “The corks of the bottles popped out, making sounds like gunshots,” the official added. CISF officials quickly intervened only to find pieces of broken glass on the floor. “The women then started shouting slogans like ‘India is the best’ and ‘We love India’.”

Since it was not a security threat, no action was taken against the women, and they were let off.

I am wondering what happened to the rules about letting an inebriated person onboard an aircraft. ? The women should thank their lucky stars for Indian hospitality.
