Chileka Airport Police last Thursday arrested two passengers for allegedly terrorising Malawian Airlines cabin crew and fellow passengers.
The two passengers—British national Muhamad Yasin Iqbal Karim and South African Omar Imran Bashir Kassam—have since been released on bail by the Blantyre Magistrate’s Court.
The court heard that Karim, aged 25 and a holder of passport number 510886411, and Kassam, aged 32 whose address is c/o Globe Group of Companies, Post Office Box 5866, Limbe, on Thursday last week were unruly while travelling from South Africa to Malawi.
Further, the court learnt that while airborne, the duo started using abusive language, quarrelling with crew members and refusing to comply with the airline’s rules on board.
Blantyre principal resident magistrate Innocent Nebi released them on bail on condition that they pay K3 million as bail bond.
Kamuzu International Airport police spokesperson Sapulani Chitonde told The Nation in Lilongwe that police at Chileka International Airport in Blantyre arrested the two passengers at around 3:15pm for causing disorder on the flight to Malawi.
The court is expected to continue hearing on the matter on January 11 next year. n
