Thiruvananthapuram: A top official of the Trivandrum International Airport has been booked for sexually assaulting a colleague at a flat in the city.

The Thumba Police is investigating the case that has been registered following the complaint of a lady employee.

The accused is the Chief Airport Officer G Madhusudana Rao.

Both are employees of the Adani Trivandrum International Airport Limited (ATIAL), which is a part of the Indian conglomerate Adani Group.

The lady alleged that Rao invited her to the flat and assaulted her.

The Adani Group took over the management of the airport in Kerala's capital city from the Airports Authority of India (AAI) last October. ATIAL, a subsidiary of Adani Enterprises Limited, will maintain and manage the airport for the next 50 years.

The ATIAL employees, including the complainant and the accused, were formerly with the AAI. As part of the disinvestment deal the airport will function with the participation of the former AAI employees, who will be retained for three years. After three years, they could either be part of Adani Airports or get transferred to any AAI-managed airport.

Adani Enterprises has won the rights to run several airports in the country.
