Veteran off-spinner Harbhajan Singh was left fuming after a pilot of Jet Airways allegedly abused a physically challenged on his flight, passed racial comments towards a passenger and later physically assaulted a lady. It was really an unfortunate incident and unlike many, Bhajji didn’t keep his mouth shut and expressed his anger through the micro-blogging site twitter.

Taking to his twitter handle Harbhajan had written, “So-called this Bernd Hoesslin a pilot with @jetairways called my fellow Indian(u bloody Indian get out of my flight)while he is earning here.” One of the most successful India bowlers, Bhajji urged Jet Airways authority to take strict action against the pilot for his misdeeds. “Strict action must b taken &such things should not be allowed or tolerated in r country.#proudtobeindian let’s get together and sort this” Harbhajan wrote.

The offie continues to impress in the shortest format of the game but is unlikely to be recalled in the national team anytime sooner. He recently bagged the 200th T20 wicket while playing for the Mumbai Indians. Bhajji had gone on a trip with his friends and family to Alibaugh and even posted a video on his Instagram account.

Jet Airways replied to the incident and gave their statement. The statement read, We take a serious view of such incidents.
