However, aviation regulatory body have ordered an internal enquiry into the matter and a report will be submitted to them by the airlines within 30 days.

He asked his followers to shame Goswami wherever they find him. He also challenged the airlines to ban him if he indulges into similar activity. After which Captain of the flight in a statement released said that he was disheartened to learn that IndiGo has taken action against Kunal Kamra on the basis of social media posts.
