During the course of the primetime debate regarding the incident, Mr Katiyal explained the sequence of events that led to him being savagely pinned down and beaten by up to three IndiGo ground staff.

Mr Katiyal said the initial confrontation took place as a staffer shouted at him to not stand at a particular spot. When he protested about the tone of the imperative, Mr Katiyal claimed he was surrounded by 8-9 personnel, some of whom used foul language. The personnel then indicated they'd hit him and after a short but sharp argument proceeded to do just that.
