After the plane taxied and as passengers were being disembarked he was assaulted at 2.50 pm, he said. No reason was given for the alleged attack.
Nothing has happened in the case and Thai Rath did not quote anyone from the airline over the story.
A senior policeman has said the police will only act if the complainant returns to press charges.
