SpiceJet sacks two more pilots

 Eight pilots of different airlines were under the close watch of Rajasthan’s Anti-Corruption Bureau, a day after it arrested the two SpiceJet pilots — Captain Anuj Kumar and First Officer Amit Mundra — while one pilot is under the scanner of Delhi Police.

A SpiceJet release said the airline had terminated the services of Kumar and Mundra with immediate effect. They were produced before a Jaipur court which sent them to judicial custody. Kumar and Mundra have been accused of misrepresenting their flying hours in order to obtain their licence from the civil aviation regulator DGCA, the release said. Both the pilots said they have done no wrong and that they passed out from a government-run flying school.
