Shortly after takeoff from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, a 20-year-old Bangladeshi man aboard a Malindo Air flight had to be tied up after he reportedly stripped naked and started watching pornography on his laptop, and tried to attack female flight attendants.
Local media reported that he was arrested upon his arrival in Dhaka.
Yahoo News reported: The man, a student at a Malaysian university, initially put his clothes back on at the request of cabin crew, the New Straits Times newspaper reported.
But he then tried to hug female crew members, and when his advances were rejected he became aggressive and attacked a stewardess, the paper said.
The cabin crew and passengers reportedly managed to subdue him and his hands were tied up with a piece of cloth for the rest of the flight.
There was no indication as to why he was acting strangely.
The airline, a Malaysian subsidiary of an Indonesian company, declined to confirm all the details but said in a statement that a “disruptive passenger” was tied up on the flight to Dhaka, and was arrested on arrival.
