Hockey star PR Sreejesh slams IndiGo for extra charging over goalkeeper baggage
Bengaluru/UNI: Team India hockey goalkeeper PR Sreejesh on Friday slammed domestic airline IndiGo for charging him extra for handling his goalkeeper bag which has a 41-inch hockey stick.
"FIH allows me to play with a 41-inch hockey stick, but @indiGo6E never allows (sic) me to carry anything over 39-inch. What to do? Pay extra Rs 1500 for handling the goalkeeper bag. #loot," the 34-year-old goalkeeper tweeted.
