In the latest incident of an Indian allegedly developing sex fever on a U.S. flight, 62-year-old Devender Singh of Baton Rouge, Louisiana was arrested March 2, 2014 on charges of abusive sexual contact with his female co-passenger.

According to a complaint filed by the FBI in the U.S. District Court in New Jersey, on a flight from Houston to Newark Liberty airport (New Jersey) Devender Singh pawed his sleeping female co-passenger’s breast with one hand while masturbating his exposed dick with the other hand.

Indians – Sex Fever

Devender Singh is not the first Indian to land in deep trouble over sex issues on a U.S. flight.

Telugu bidda Srinivasa Erramilli is serving time in an Ohio prison for groping his co-passenger on a U.S. flight.

A few years back, Murali Krishna Nookella got into trouble for masturbating on a flight from Philadelphia to Denver. Nookella confessed to “Obscene and Indecent Exposure on an Aircraft” but was lucky to avoid jail time. A U.S. judge ordered Murali Nookella to complete a program of mental health treatment and restricted him from flying on Southwest Airlines.

    “…innocent unless and until proven guilty”

    And how do they prove he was guilty?

    By making the woman recount and thus relive the entire incident?

    This incident is disgusting.

    Aren’t woman safe from these sex-starved maniacs anywhere in the world?

    The FBI agent claims Devender already admitted pawing the woman. Plus, they must have taken DNA samples etc.

    So there are two options – Plea bargain for a lesser sentence.

    Or go to trial and if found guilty, get a stiff sentence.

    If found guilty and after serving his term, he could get deported too since he’s not American but an Indian citizen.

      I don’t understand. He can go to trial even after he admitted pawing the woman? What for?

      I think chemical castration is an apt punishment for such crimes. What say you?

      SearchIndia.com Responds:

      If admission in front of the police were enough, there’d be no need for the judiciary and all cases would be solved! 😉

      The point is, ‘Confessions’ to the police are often dicey for a variety of reasons – Use of Force, Failure to
      Mirrandize the arrestee, Use of Inadmissible Evidence, Police Frameups of Innocent People etc.
