  • Posted

MPR Solicitors represented an Indian IT project manager who was charged with indecent assault on board an Air India flight and was acquitted by a jury at Isleworth Crown Court on 12 January 2010.

The Indian national who does not wish to be named for personal reasons, was travelling on an Air India flight from Mumbai to London Heathrow in August 2009. During the flight he was accused of indecently assaulting a female passenger who had been sitting next to him. The Prosecution claimed that he had touched the passenger in her private area and was getting ready to grope her. The newly-married executive who works for a multi-national IT software company had maintained throughout his trial that he had never sexually touched the female passenger who is a professional psychiatrist.

The jury took only a few minutes to return a not guilty verdict after a three day trial at Isleworth Crown Court.
