On board, the captain of the team Okolie Odafa Onyeka, 23, allegedly touched an airhostess, Sonakshi Bhamra (name changed). “He allegedly touched her derriere (buttocks),” said a police officer.
“When she objected, Onyeka and his two friends — Kalu Ogba Nanna, 23, and Arindam Bhattacharya, 20 — got into a verbal altercation with her. After the passengers and the pilot intervened, they apologised.
However, the players reportedly continued to pass lewd comments against Bhamra. The matter was then reported to the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF). As soon as the flight landed in Mumbai around 7.30pm, the CISF took charge of the football players and handed them over to the police.
