Cheating in a relationship is one of the vilest acts that human beings can commit. And if you are cheating on your wife remember, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

In a strange but tragic incident, an inebriated Iranian woman created such a furore on board a Qatar airways plane 37,000 feet above ground that the pilots had to land the plane mid-way in Chennai. 

The Iranian couple was on their way from Doha to Bali in Indonesia for a holiday. While the husband was blissfully asleep, the wife managed to unlock his smartphone using his thumb impression and found some excess baggage: she discovered he was cheating on her.

And that set her off. The woman flew into a rage and got into a fight with her husband. When the airline crew and co-passengers tried to pacify her, they had to face her wrath as well.

The uproar compelled the pilots to land the plane mid-way in Chennai. 

After offloading the Iranian couple and their child in Chennai, the Boeing 777 operating Qatar Airways' flight QR 962 resumed its journey to Denpasar Bali.

Authorities in Chennai decided to keep the couple and their child at the airport till the woman got sober and also because they did not have any Indian visa. Later, they were put on a plane to Kuala Lumpur and taken to Doha by a connecting flight from there.

"The family was de-boarded due to the ruckus created by her but no FIR was registered as there was no security issue. They stayed in Chennai for a while and later the family was sent to Kuala Lumpur by Batik Air flight 6019 for further travel to Doha," said a Chennai airport official.

“In respect of passenger privacy we do not comment on individual cases,” a Qatar Airways spokesperson said.
