The Iranian national was travelling from Doha to Bali when she discovered mid-flight that her husband was apparently cheating on her.
An enraged woman forced an airliner to make an emergency landing after she discovered mid-flight that her husband was apparently cheating on her.

The woman, an Iranian national, was travelling from Doha to Bali with her husband and child on a Qatar Airways flight on Sunday, India's Hindustan Times reported on Tuesday.

As her husband slept, she unlocked his phone with his hand using the fingerprint recognition, revealing the alleged affair in all its sordid detail.

Angered by the discovery, the woman reportedly awoke her husband by hitting him and continued to do so repeatedly. The cabin crew tried to intervene but were unable to calm the situation.

With the inflight episode spiralling out of control, the pilots decided to make an unscheduled stop in the southern Indian city of Chennai.

The woman, her husband and their child were taken off the plane, which then resumed its journey to Indonesia, an unnamed security official told the paper.

"The family spent the day at Chennai airport and was sent to Kuala Lumpur by a Batik Air flight. No police action was taken," the official said.
