    Hijack Hoax Lands Business-Class Flyer in Jail for Life

    (Bloomberg) -- An Indian court sentenced a business class passenger to life in jail after he was found guilty of placing a hijacking note in the washroom of a flight, the first such ruling under a new law.

    Birju Kishor Salla, 38, was also fined 50 million rupees ($720,000), which will be distributed among pilots, crew and passengers, a special court of the National Investigation Agency said in a judgment on Tuesday. The passenger, who was flying on a Jet Airways India Ltd. flight to New Delhi from Mumbai in 2017, was found guilty of intentionally disrupting the operations of an aircraft on board.

    “Flight No. 9W 339 is covered by hijackers and aircraft should not be land and flown straight to POK,” Salla wrote in a note placed in a tissue paper box, according to court filings. POK refers to the part of the disputed state of Kashmir that’s administrated by Pakistan. Salla further vowed to start killing people if the aircraft’s landing gear was deployed, according to the documents.

    Well, would he be flying commercial in India if he had 50 million rupees?
    It's to scare people.

    Anyhow, they should have sentenced him to drop from the sky from about 20,000 ft, right into the Indian ocean.

    Cheap fish food, cheap burial, poetic justice, no protesters hanging around the grave . . . What's not to like?

    Here is the states that would be considered a non violent crime since no one was actually injured. Then a lenient liberal judge would sentence him to wear an ankle bracelet for a year and perform 100 hours of community service. Of course if he had ever volunteered to help a Democrat candidate for an office that would suffice as the community service.
