Rajesh Kapoor, who is a class 12 drop-out, has been charged about a dozen times for stealing in aircraft — five cases of stealing at two railway stations in the national capital – Nizamuddin and New Delhi railway stations and six cases in theft in aircraft. Kapoor has also been blacklisted by IndiGo and Vistara for his alleged habit of stealing, DCP-Delhi Airport Sanjay Bhatia told HT.
This time, he was caught by the vigilant duty manager of Vistara airlines who reported to police that they had caught a passenger who had used the same flight to return but under a fake name. According to the report, Kapoor had forged his Aadhar card and took a flight under a false name in order to steal from cabin bags of other passengers. However, vigilant cabin crew caught him after noticing suspicious behaviour by Kapoor.
