Shankar Mishra, accused of urinating on a female passenger on an Air India flight last year, has been banned from flying for four months.
Mishra was earlier banned for just 30 days after the news broke earlier this month but the order has now been extended by a further four months.
Mishra had turned the tables on the female passenger by claiming that she urinated on herself on the New York-Delhi flight on November 26. The alleged victim denied the accusation saying it was 'completely false and concocted'.
Mishra was arrested by the Delhi Police from Bengaluru earlier this month after a complaint was filed by the female passenger.
Mishra was remanded to 14-day judicial custody and was banned from flying for 30 days initially.
