Delhi sessions court has reserved order on accused Shankar Mishra's bail plea on Monday, January 30.
Mishra urinated on his septugenararian co-passenger on New York-Delhi flight in November 2022.
The court had earlier adjourned to January 30 the fresh petition filed by Mishra seeking regular bail in the case. It was adjourned because the investigation officer was not present on January 27 and the complainant's lawyer was not supplied with a copy of the plea.
