Wells Fargo Fires VP of Operations In India After He ‘URINATED On 72-year-old Woman During Business Class Flight From New York to New Delhi’

A vice president at banking giant Wells Fargo has been fired after he was accused of urinating on a 72-year-old woman while traveling between New York City and Mumbai.

The incident involving Shankar Mishra occurred on November 26 in the business class cabin of an Air India flight. Mishra’s lawyers claimed the senior citizen ‘condoned’ the act, according to multiple reports in India.

In a statement to, Wells Fargo said the company ‘holds employees to the highest standards of professional and personal behavior and we find these allegations deeply disturbing.’ 

The press announcement went on to say that Mishra, 34, a vice president of operations in India, had been ‘terminated.’ 

Multiple reports in India say that Mishra, a resident of Mumbai, was purportedly inebriated at the time of the event. Police in New Delhi have yet to question Mishra about the matter because they have not been able to track him down.

Through his lawyers, Mishra charges that the woman ‘condoned’ the stunt and that he has reimbursed her as well as paid for her clothes and bags to be cleaned.

Mishra’s lawyers says that they have What’s App communication among the banking exec and the woman to back up their claims. However, the lawyers said that the woman has since returned the money and made a report to Air India.

In the woman’s accusation, the 72-year-old said that the circumstance happened after the crew had served lunch and dimmed the lights. She alleges Mishra, who previously worked at Citi Bank, of stumbling towards her from a few seats back and then unzipping his pants and peeing on her.

He only halted when the passenger sitting next her told him to, the woman wrote.

She said that she requested the cabin crew to make an arrangement to have Mishra arrested upon landing. Instead, she was forced to sit near him in crew seats for the rest of the flight with the captain not allowing her to sit in first class, where there were empty seats.

The crew did give her a set of pajamas and footwear and sprayed disinfectant on her belongings.

She claims that Mishra began lamenting and asking her not to file a complaint.

Following the incident, Air India came in for criticism from the Directorate of General Civil Aviation who said in a statement: ‘The conduct of the concerned airline appears to be unprofessional and has led to a systemic failure.’ 

The victim’s statement to Air India read, via NDTV: ‘I was stunned when he started crying and profusely apologizing to me, begging me not to lodge a complaint against him because he is a family man and did not want his wife and child to be affected by this incident.’

She continued: ‘In my already distraught state, I was further disoriented by being made to confront and negotiate with the perpetrator of the horrific incident at close quarters. I told him his actions were inexcusable, but in the face of his pleading and begging in front of me, and my own shock and trauma, I found it difficult to insist on his arrest or to press charges against him.’
