Allegedly inebriated, the group showered abuses on airport staffers and raised ‘Jai Samaikyandhra’ slogans, to which they responded with cries in favour of Telangana
A software engineer and her friends created a ruckus at the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport, allegedly under the influence of alcohol in the early hours of Sunday.
Two women, including the techie, and their friends — Prasad, Radhakrishna, Pruthvi Raj and Chandrasekhar — apparently consumed alcohol and went to the airport in Tata Safari vehicle. They entered the gaming arena near the parking lot. When Prasad tried to sit on a chair, the staff requested him not to as it was broken.
To this, Prasad began showering abuses at the staff, RGIA Inspector D. Durga Prasad said. Even as the staff tried to pacify Prasad, the techie and her friends joined him and shouted at the employees, he said. They also reportedly raised slogans in favour of Samaikhyandhra.
Alerted by the nuisance, security officials and policemen rushed to the area. But the group, allegedly led by the techie, continued to abuse everyone, even as they raised their slogans in favour of a unified State, police said.
When the employees got agitated and raised ‘Jai Telangana’ slogans, they sensed trouble and escaped in their vehicle. Police, however, caught them at the Shamshabad outpost. A case was booked against them and they were sent to Osmania General hospital for alcohol test.
Police said the group, originally hail from Visakhapatnam, were residents of Kukatpally. “The techie told us that she was working in Hitec City while the others were into business,” they added.
