'Overweight' air hostess moves HC against sacking

The Airline had last year terminated the services of the petitioner along with 10 other “overweight” air hostesses.

The petitioner, Sangita Garb (46), who served the airlines for 25 years, pleaded with the court to set aside the termination order as it is “violative” of her fundamental rights.

“The order of dispensing of the services by the authority is without application of mind, illegal, arbitrary and contrary to the services regulations and standing orders and therefore untenable in law or liable to be set-aside,” advocate Arvind Kumar Sharma, appearing for the petitioner, contended.
