Patna airport police on Sunday arrested two drunk passengers with help of the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) for consuming alcohol on a domestic flight, which was a clear violation of rules. 

According to sources, both the passengers were already drunk when they boarded the flight from Delhi, and tried to continue drinking in the flight.

It hasbeen reported that there was no ruckus onboard as the two accused stopped and apologised when a crew member intervened.

Following the standard protocol, the airline informed the Air Traffic Controller, and they were arrested on arrival.

Before handing them over to the airport police, the CISF took them into custody.

Civil aviation regulator Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) have said this raises serious questions on the role of the CISF.

"How did these men get in with beer cans?" they said.

This comes days after the arrest of Shankar Mishra, the Mumbai man who urinated on a woman on an Air India New York-Delhi flight while drunk last month, created a huge uproar over the six-week delay in action against him.
