A report by the Hindustan Times has said that "a Doha-Bengaluru flight was forced to make an emergency landing at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport late on Saturday (14 May 2022) night". This was after a drunk passenger reportedly created a ruckus on board.

As per the report, "Police said that the passenger, Sarfuddin Ulwar, was arrested and booked under the Indian Penal Code and the Aircraft Act. He was also reportedly produced in a metropolitan magistrate court on and remanded in judicial custody.

"Police said that Ulwar allegedly misbehaved with an air hostess when she tried to stop him from drinking. They added that he also allegedly abused fellow passengers, who tried to intervene and picked up a fight with them. Police said his behaviour forced the diversion of the flight and its emergency landing in Mumbai.", said the report.

When the flight landed, the Central Industrial Security Force personnel at the Mumbai airport took Ulwar into custody and handed him over to the police.
