A Qatar Airways plane on its way to Bali, Indonesia, made an emergency landing after a fight broke out between a couple on the flight.

The husband fell asleep approximately an hour after the flight took off, and the wife used her sleeping husband's finger to unlock his smartphone and read his messages. The fight broke out when, reading through his messages, she discovered he had been having an affair.

She began hitting her husband, until the captain was forced to make an emergency landing in Chennai, India. According to the New Indian Express, the wife was drunk.

The couple and their child were taken to an Indian detention center after landing, since they did not possess the proper visas. They were placed on a flight for Malaysia on Thursday evening.

No police action was taken.

According to the Hindustan Times, the plane's crew attempted but failed to calm the wife, who is an Iranian national.

Qatar Airways refused to comment.
