According to a New York Times report, Heather Wells, who was traveling first class from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport to Charlotte Douglas International Airport on July 7, 2021, became agitated about an hour into the flight after consuming alcohol and insisted she "wanted out" of the plane, the report said quoting a lawsuit filed on June 3 in the US district court for the Western District of Texas. The unruly passenger then began running toward the rear of the plane, dropping to her knees and "talking incoherently to passengers, before crawling back toward the main cabin. When a flight attendant intervened, she "became verbally aggressive, threatening to hurt him if he didn’t move, and then pushed him". She then rushed to the front of the plane and attempted to grab the "cabin door while screaming and yelling profanities". Two flight attendants and a passenger managed to restrain Wells, but not before she struck one of the attendants multiple times in the head. They used duct tape and flex cuffs to secure her to a seat, though she continued kicking, spitting, and trying to bite and head butt. She has been fined $81,950 for unruly behavior.

At least 10 members of a minority Christian community were rescued on Saturday after a Muslim crowd attacked their settlement on a blasphemy accusation in eastern Pakistan, police and a community leader said. The crowd, which accused the Christian group of blasphemy, also hurled stones and bricks at the police, said Shariq Kamal, the police chief of Sargodha district. At least one house and a small shoe factory was set on fire by protesters who had gathered after neighbours alleged that the Muslim holy book, the Koran, had been desecrated by a minority community member, according to a police spokesman and Akmal Bhatti, a Christian leader. "They burned one house" and several Christians were badly beaten, Bhatti said. A large contingent of police cordoned off the settlement, Kamal said, adding that the crowd had been pushed back. One member of the Christian community who was taken to hospital was later said to be in a stable condition.

Their belief in the lord’s promise, as mentioned in the Gita that “I shall liberate you from all your sins”, went a little too far. Police in Lucknow nabbed three robbers, all in their early 20s, who strangely used part of the booty to fund their pilgrimages and to organize bhandaras (charity feasts). “When the cops questioned them about the reason for holding bhandaras, they said that a priest had advised them to do so to wash away their sins,” a senior police official said. According to police records, the gang had targeted two women on June 7, and decamped with their belongings. “Based on the CCTV camera footage, we traced the bikers and arrested them,” said ADCP, South Zone, Shashank Singh. Police sources added that the bike used in the robbery was also seized, and efforts are ongoing to uncover other criminal acts committed by the gang. According to police, the gang began to target people when they wanted to go on a pilgrimage but didn’t have enough resources.
