The spokesperson said, “Air India lays the highest stress on proper conduct of its staff and has a zero tolerance policy towards acts of impropriety.”

Meanwhile, the airline has given charge of Bhasin’s duties to another official Sanjay Misra.

In a notification, it said, “Sanjay Misra, General Manager (Commercial), Eastern Region, will hold current charge of the post of Regional Director, Eastern Region in terms of Service Regulation 21, in addition to his own duties.
