In February 2012, I have written an article Now itâ€™s the turn of Airlines making my readers aware of the problems faced by passengers with disabilities then. One of the mention in that article was the SpiceJet probes offloading of disabled woman. Jeeja Ghosh has reached supreme court taking the matter serious.
The supreme court yesterday has given its judgement asking SpiceJet Limited to compensate Jeeja Ghosh an eminent activist involved in disability rights, for forcibly de-boarding her by the flight crew, because of her disability.
SC has added that â€œThere should be a full recognition of the fact that persons with disability were integral part of the community, equal in dignity and entitled to enjoy the same human rights and freedoms as othersâ€.
