Sreejesh slams airline for extra charging

Bengaluru, Sep 23 (UNI) Team India hockey goalkeeper PR Sreejesh on Friday slammed a domestic airline 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.

Sreejesh also attached the payment receipt given by Indigo for his flight from Bengaluru to Kochi. He is one of the best goalkeepers and was nominated for the Goalkeeper of the Year Award for 2022.

The star goalkeeper was a member of Team India that bagged a bronze medal at the Tokyo Olympics last year. UNI BDN GK
