An enraged woman forced a Qatar Airways flight to make an emergency landing after she discovered mid-flight that her husband was apparently cheating on her.
The woman, an Iranian national, was travelling from Doha to Bali with her husband and child on a Qatar Airways flight on Sunday.
Angered by the discovery, the woman reportedly started to hit her husband. The cabin crew intervened but were unable to calm the situation.
With the in-flight episode spiralling out of control, the pilots decided to make an unscheduled stop in the southern Indian city of Chennai
.The woman, her husband and their child were taken off the plane, which then resumed its journey to Indonesia, an unnamed security official said.
“The family spent the day at Chennai airport and was sent to Kuala Lumpur by a Batik Air flight. No police action was taken,” the official said.
