When a man declared himself a terrorist in his dating life, his Jet Airways flight aborted takeoff in Kolkoata, India on Monday.
The man was onboard Jet Airways flight 472 to Mumbai. He snapchatted a photo of himself “with a handkerchief covering half his face” along with the comment “Terrorist on board, I destroy women’s hearts”.

The plane was taxiing out. Another passenger sitting diagonally behind the man saw the message and informed a flight attendant, who told the captain, who informed air traffic control. They returned to the gate.
The man was taken off the flight and handed over to police. His bags were removed and inspected. The flight departed an hour late.
Although it was obviously a private joke the man was sending to friends, an ‘inquiry’ continues into the incident that a nosy fellow passenger stuck themselves in the middle of.
