The passenger who was thrashed and dragged by the IndiGo staff members has been identified as Rajeev Katyal. The exact reasons behind the scuffle could not be identified but as per the report, the ground staff objected the passenger for standing below one of the wings of the aircraft while waiting for the carrier bus.
But the mentioned fact doesn’t go with the video. It clearly shows that after an initial verbal spat over some issue, the IndiGo staff forcefully stopped the passenger from boarding the carrier bus and then thrashed and dragged him to the ground.
