New Delhi, February 27: India’s largest airline IndiGo on Thursday told the Delhi high court that stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra’s six-month flying ban for heckling journalist Arnab Goswami during a flight has been reduced to three months.

The high court, however, asked the DGCA to consider Kamra’s representation and whether the ban was in violation of civil aviation requirements (CAR)—guidelines for the domestic aviation sector—within eight weeks. 

The Delhi high court had on Tuesday questioned the Directorate-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) for imposing a flying ban on the stand-up comedian after his controversial encounter with TV presenter Arnab Goswami on an IndiGo flight.

While hearing Kamra’s petition, the High Court had pulled up the aviation regulator and said that they should have looked into Kamra’s complaint before initiating any action against him.
