Air India made ‘disabled’ passenger to crawl

NEW DELHI, Jan 31, (AFP): A disabled passenger said Sunday she was forced to crawl on New Delhi airport’s tarmac after Air India failed to provide a wheelchair when her plane landed, an allegation the carrier denies. Anita Ghai, 53, a leading disability rights activist, said she was left stranded after arriving in Delhi from the northern Indian city of Dehradun on Saturday evening. After being helped down steps from the plane by airline staff and a friend, Ghai said no wheelchair was available for her to reach the terminal- bound bus several metres away.
