Shankar’s Father Defends Him, Claims Allegations Are ‘False’

In a bid to defend Shankar Mishra, his father Shyam Mishra on Friday said on camera that “perhaps he (his son) was being blackmailed”. He also claimed that the case against his son is “false”. “She (victim) had demanded payment and it was made. Don’t know what happened next. Must have demanded something that perhaps wasn’t met that upset her. Perhaps there was blackmailing, there must be something,” he said, reported ANI.

Shyam Mishra claimed that his son slept in the flight and was questioned by the airline staff after he woke up. “False case. My son hadn’t slept for 30-35 hrs.

“He unzipped his pants and urinated on me and kept standing there until the person sitting next to me tapped him and told him to go back to his seat, at which point he staggered back to his seat. I immediately got up to notify the stewardess of what had happened. My clothes, shoes and bag were soaked in urine,” she added.
