MiG pilot's family experience insensitivity

New Delhi: The family of the pilot who died when an Indian Air Force MiG-21 fighter jet crashed in Rajasthan’s Barmer on Thursday had a distressing experience of the insensitivity of fellow passengers on the flight from Delhi to Jodhpur to bring the body of the pilot.

A lawyer who traveled on the same plane has tweeted about this. Sherbir Panag, a financial crimes and corporate lawyer, wrote on Twitter that the family of Flight Lieutenant Uneek Bal, one of the two pilots who died in the MiG-21 crash, was on a flight from Delhi to Jodhpur on Friday. They had gone to take possession of the body of Unaweep Bal. They were in the third row seats next to me. As soon as the plane took off, the captain announced that the passengers in the first and second rows should remain seated for a while so that the family with children could disembark early. But even then the passengers in the first two rows were not ready for it. They did not allow children’s families to disembark first. Seeing this, I and some other passengers shouted loudly at these unruly people. Then these ungrateful people sat down. The insensitivity shown by people towards the family of an air force pilot who lost his life for our country is shocking. In this MiG accident, Wing Commander M. Rana also died.
