A passenger created extreme ruckus mid-air on a flight and also started scuffling with the crew. The incident happened on a Dubai-bound flight from Peshawar on September 14, when the unnamed passenger suddenly started stripping and punching seats for not being allowed to offer Namaz.
The passenger's unusual activities on Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) PK-283 flight also damaged the aircraft's window. Videos uploaded on the internet shows man kicking windows and seats of the plane.
