Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad argues with police officer in Latur- Watch video

Air India has asked Delhi Police to explain the delay in action against controversial Shiv Sena MP Ravindra Gaikwad who is accused of thrashing an elderly airline employee.

In a video, which has gone viral, Gaikwad was arguing with the cops after he did not receive cash from an ATM.

The Member of Lok Sabha is purportedly seen arguing with a police officer in the video which is shot during his protest over non-function of ATMs at Latur. The Osmanabad constituency MP reached Latur yesterday had sent his assistant to withdraw money from an ATM at Latur. However, after trying out different ATMs in the region, the aide returned empty-handed, saying the ATM's were out of cash.

When policemen arrived and requested Gaikwad to discontinue his protest as it was hampering the vehicular traffic, the Sena MP allegedly shouted at them, police said. "Once we get the go-ahead from him, we will make them public", one official said.

However, Gaikwad later tendered a letter expressing "regret" over the incident to Civil Aviation Minister A Gajapathi Raju, AI revoked the flying ban, closely followed by Federation of Indian Airlines and other private airlines. He said the Centre and union finance minister is responsible for the situation, and he has right to protest. Taking retributive action, the national carrier canceled Gaikwad's return ticket to Pune after he boastfully asserted he would board the afternoon flight.
