A Qatar Airways flight was forced to make an emergency landing on Sunday after a woman allegedly found out her husband was cheating on her while on the flight.

The pilot on flight QR-972, which was originally going from Doha, Qatar, to Bali, Indonesia decided to divert the plane to Chennai, India, after the passenger allegedly unlocked her husband’s phone by placing his finger on it while he was sleeping and discovered the news, according to the Times of India.

The woman, who according to the Times had been drinking during the flight, was removed from the plane with her family in the Indian city after getting into arguments with some of the crewmembers trying to alleviate the situation.

Even though the plane was diverted, officials declined to press charges due to a lack of criminal activity. The family later boarded a flight to Kuala Lumpur, where they later took a connecting flight to Doha.

The airline said in a statement to the Times that it cannot comment on the case because it would violate the passenger’s privacy.
