New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday said that the aviation regulator of the airlines, other than Indigo, has not confirmed the indefinite flying ban on stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra without trial over allegations of heckling journalist Arnab Goswami.
In his petition, Kamra said his internal committee had been banned by IndiGo for six months before a decision was reached, while other airlines – Air India, SpiceJet and Go Air – imposed an indefinite ban on him.
Senior lawyers Vivek Tankha, a comedian representing Gopal Sankaranarayanan and Mohit Mathur, approached the High Court seeking directions to the DGCA to revoke the ban.
He urged the airlines to take action against them for allegedly violating the Civil Aviation Requirements (CAR).
Justice Naveen Chawla asked the DGCA for instructions on what actions should be taken in relation to the actions taken by other airlines and listed the matter for trial on February 27.
Kamra has asked the DGCA to quickly decide its representation to take action against airlines.
