Court Declines Plea Of Air India Pilots

New Delhi : The Delhi High Court on Thursday refused to entertain a plea of striking Air India pilots, saying they are in contempt of court.

The court, while dismissing the plea filed by Indian Pilots' Guild (IPG), an association of Air India pilots, said: "You cannot take advantage of the appeal while you are in contempt."

"There is no reason to entertain the plea, there is no urgency, as according to you there is no strike," said a division bench of Justice Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Justice Rajiv Shakdher.

The IPG moved the court challenging the court's earlier order that restrained the pilots of the national carrier from going on an "illegal strike".
