Executives at Wells Fargo have made the decision to disassociate their organization from a superior who behaved foolishly on an Air India trip. Shankar Mishra, vice president of Wells Fargo’s India Chapter, allegedly overdid his antics on a trip back in November. The Mumbai resident is particularly charged with urinating while inebriated on a fellow traveler, who is described as being in her 70s. Business Today reports that Shankar was only prohibited from flying for 30 days after the event. The airline’s spokeswoman did add, “If proven guilty, action would be taken against the rowdy passenger in accordance with regulatory requirements.”

Despite this, many people weren’t happy and started to criticize Shankar and Air India online. People also questioned why Shankar hadn’t been detained despite the fact that a case had reportedly just been started in this regard. The woman in issue agreed to not disclose the event in exchange for 15,000 rupees, however she returned the money, according to texts released by Shankar’s legal team in reaction to the outcry from the public. Furthermore, according to the Press Trust of India, the attorneys claimed that the woman “condoned” being urinated on.
"There is no eyewitness to the incident & the money was returned as an afterthought", says Ishani Sharma (Shankar Mishra's lawyer) after being confronted by TIMES NOW's @aakaaanksha.

Ishani Sharma, an attorney, made the noteworthy claim that the elderly woman returning the pay-off was “an afterthought.” She further mentioned that no eyewitnesses could support the account. According to a brief statement that went viral on social media, Wells Fargo appears to have chosen to cut its losses in light of the case’s craziness and let Shankar go.
