Bound flight sent back to Toronto; passenger arrested

An Indian Canadian Punjabi man was arrested for assaulting an Air Canada flight attendant on the Delhi-bound flight from Toronto on Wednesday, police said.

The flight is expected to depart from Pearson International Airport sometime on Wednesday.

According to various reports, Sidhu is said to have hurled abusive language while carrying out the assault.

An Air Canada flight headed from Shanghai to Toronto has now landed in Calgary.

The flight attendant was assessed by Peel ambulance services and did not have any injuries.

"He suffered so much". They don't give any voucher for the food.

The diversion wasn't the first headache for passengers on this particular flight.

"Sidhu has been charged with two counts of mischief, assault causing bodily harm, and endangering safety of the aircraft".

He was scheduled to appear in a Brampton, Ontario, court later today.
