New Delhi:

India's largest budget carrier IndiGo Airlines has suspended stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra for six months for allegedly heckling senior journalist Arnab Goswami onboard one of its planes from Mumbai to Lucknow. 

"In light of the recent incident on board 6E 5317 from Mumbai to Lucknow, we wish to inform that we are suspending Mr Kunal Kamra from flying with IndiGo for a period of six months, as his conduct onboard was unacceptable behaviour," the airline said in a tweet.

"Hereby, we wish to advise our passengers to refrain from indulging in personal slander whilst onboard, as this can potentially compromise the safety of fellow passengers," it added.

In a video clip posted by Kamra on Twitter, the stand-up comedian is seen asking Goswami if he is a "coward or a journalist".
