Lucknow: Passengers on board an Air India Express flight were left aghast when a male passenger stripped mid-air and started walking around the aisle nude on Saturday.

The IX-194 flight carrying 150 passengers took off from Dubai and was Lucknow-bound.

The man was wrapped in a blanket by the cabin crew and held down to a seat by two crew members.

Upon landing at the Lucknow airport, the man was handed over to the security.

“As per the direction of the Captain of the flight, the passenger was handed over to Airlines Security at Lucknow Airport where the investigation is underway,” Air India Express spokesman told ANI.

It is still unclear what provoked the passenger to strip mid-air.
