A Qatar Airways flight made an emergency landing after a female passenger found out her husband was cheating on her mid-flight, reports the Hindustan Times.
The unidentified Iranian woman reportedly used her husband’s fingerprint to unlock his phone while he was asleep.
She became infuriated by what she found on the device.
Flight attendants were unable to calm the woman as she repeatedly hit her husband.
The incident caused the pilots to make the decision to make an emergency landing in India.
The flight was on its way from Doha to Bali.
The couple and their child were later removed from the plane.
“The family spent the day at Chennai airport. No police action was taken,” an unnamed source told the newspaper.
Local Chennai paper the New Indian Express, meanwhile, reported that airport director, G Chandramouli, claimed the woman was drunk and said the family were not allowed to board a subsequent flight until she had sobered up.
