A passenger on IndiGo, a large budget carrier in India, says he was grabbed by the collar and dragged from a plane before takeoff because he complained to the flight crew about mosquitoes on board the aircraft Monday morning.

The airline also said Rai attempted to rally other passengers to damage the aircraft and used the word “hijack” at one point.

DNA India reported that other passengers say the cabin crew only suggested that he should take another flight. However, they also made him walk all the way back to the airport terminal upon grounding him.

A video obtained by Asian News International shows footage of Rai’s flight. Mosquitos can be seen bothering some passengers, who swat them away. Rai’s confrontation is not in the video.

Another passenger, who tweeted their ticket to prove they were on the flight, also confirmed the mosquitos.
