A seemingly ’’mentally unstable’’ air passenger was on Wednesday offloaded from a Colombo-bound carrier after he caused ’an ’inconvenience’’ to others by performing yoga and exercise onboard, the PTI reported quoting police.

Police said that the passenger had in his possession both Sri Lankan and US passports.

The crew's repeated requests to the passenger against doing so paid no heed. They said that he had come from Varanasi to the city to proceed to Colombo.

After the passenger created such as inconvenience'to others, he was offloaded with the help of CISF who later handed him over to the police - adding that a part of his ticket cost was also refunded by the private airline.

They added that since there was no formal complaint against the passenger, he was not arrested but was in the process of being handed over to the Sri Lanka Deputy High Commission in Chennai.
