Cases have been registered against TV anchor and actor Ranjini Haridas and a passenger, after an altercation between the two at Nedumbassery airport on Thursday morning.
Binoy of Ponkunnam arrived with family at the Cochin International Airport at Nedumbassery on Thursday morning after a vacation in the United States. There were long queues before the customs counter at the airport.
Ms. Haridas arrived at the airport as part of an artiste group returning from an overseas tour. Passengers waiting in queue objected when Ms. Haridas tried to bypass the queue and get herself cleared out of turn.
What ensued was a verbal duel between the anchor and Mr. Binoy. On the basis of a complaint lodged by Ms. Haridas with higher police officials, a team from Nedumbassery police arrived at the spot and registered a case against Mr. Binoy. Later, on the basis of a complaint lodged by Mr. Binoy’s wife, a case was registered against Ms. Haridas on similar charges.
Both complainants alleged that the other used abusive language, but the investigators are left with only video footage with no audio of the incident. The footage, sources said, had visuals of both engaged in a heated argument.
