PETALING JAYA: A Bangladeshi man was detained after he removed his clothes and attacked a stewardess during a Malindo Air flight from Kuala Lumpur to Dhaka on Saturday.
The airline said in a statement posted on its Facebook that the disruptive passenger onboard OD162 was met on arrival by a security team and detained by authorities in Dhaka.
“The crew on board followed the standard operating procedures to restrain the passenger and causing any further disruption to the crew and passengers onboard,” the post said.
The Star Online reported that the 20-year-old man, who is said to be a student at a university in Cyberjaya, was alleged to have masturbated in his seat while watching pornography on his laptop.
Witnesses said the man had walked naked to the toilet and had also urinated on his seat.
The man attacked the head stewardess when he was asked to put on his clothes.
Other passengers then helped to restrain the man and tie his hands behind his back.
Pictures of the man without clothes have been circulating on social media platforms.
“The airline will continue to stay vigilant to ensure passengers travel safely,” Malindo Air said.
