The horrifying incident where Indigo ground staff was caught on camera attacking a passenger has taken a new turn. Turns out the person who recorded the assault has been sacked from his job by the airlines reportedly in order to bury the incident. 

The airlines had issued a statement saying it had sacked the main culprit after the assault video went viral on Tuesday.

However, it was later revealed that the individual who recorded the video was the one who was sacked first, according to a Times Now report

Montu Karla, the Indigo employee told the channel that he was the first one to get terminated, while those staffers who heckled the passenger Rajiv Katiyal, were still working with the airlines. 

These employees, Kalra further stated, were only given a warning letter and had been reinstated to their jobs. 

The 81-second video shows a man in his fifties being stopped by IndiGo staffers from boarding the airline bus from the tarmac to the airport terminal. The passenger, Rajiv Katiyal, is pushed to the ground and two airline employees are seen throttling him. The assault follows a heated exchange between the two sides. However, the context of the argument is not clear from the clip. The airline staff are seen smiling during the episode.

The passenger had debarked from IndiGo Airlines flight 6E 487 from Chennai that had landed at the Delhi airport on October 15.
