Reported first in Guild for Helicopter Professionals of India:- Just recd this redirected message from Capt Bhatikar who is flying with Hiranandani Guys regret to inform you the black side of politician Gopinath Munde during this election flight in which he threaten our flight crew and his men thrashed our pilot and engineer, both are injured now. This happened on 03 April 2014 at Beed (which is his home district). Our chopper has picked him up from Juhu at 1300 hrs and landed at 1445 hrs after it was suppose to go to Parli as per the Programme provided to us in advance. In the last minute Munde revised the programme and ask the pilot to take him to other place, which pilot refused because of clearance issue. He all of a sudden started abusing Pilots”tum log jute khane wala kaam kar rahe ho, humane paise deke helicopter bulaya hai, ye(aircraft) gadi hai aur tum driver ho, mein jab chahe jahan chahe jane ko bol sakta hoon, aur tumhe Jana padega” . Our Pilot request him to behave, he went away furiously threatening them by road, after 05 minutes some twenty people came at the aircraft and started thrashing Pilot and when our AME came in between they thrashed him too. Guys we have refused to fly this man and request you all also to beware of this man and donot risk your life flying this man. Our pilot has informed DGCA and other relevant body and we are committed to raise it to another level through our RWSI channel.
