Zaira Wasim molestation: Mumbai Police arrests accused


"Any harassment or crime against women should be dealt with swiftly and effectively". Zaira Wasim yelled at the accused passenger only during the descent of the flight.

The National Award winning young actor narrated her ordeal on Instagram via a "live" video. This is awful! Is this how you are going to take care of girls? When she objected, the man reportedly claimed he was resting his feet due to "turbulence".The actor said she tried to click a photo of the man, but couldn't get a clear shot due to dim lights."Managed to get this (shot of the molester's foot)".

The airline, Air Vistara, said it was carrying out a detailed investigation into the incident.

DCW has already sought answers from Vistara Airlines seeking details of the action taken by airlines. In a statement on Twitter, Vistara has said it would look into the complaint. "If we don't help ourselves, nobody will come ahead" Zaira ended her video.

The Commission, which was constituted with an aim to investigate and examine matters relating to the safeguards provided to women under the Constitution, took a suo moto action following media reports about the incident and issued a notice to the airliner. "We have zero tolerance for such behaviour", the airline tweeted.

As soon as Zaira Wasim opened up about this incident, netizens came out in huge support. Shame on all the passengers, they are equally guilty as this moron. "He should be arrested and punished", Onir tweeted.

Bhasker slammed it an "intolerable" incident and said: "We are now at that point where a 17-year-old child has to remind us what is right and what is wrong". But u keep up the good fight. We are talking to the crew who served the complainant to understand the incident at greater length, and reaching out to fellow passengers as well. But we are quick to question the victim and her intentions the moment she raises her voice. It's a disgrace that a girl as strong and fierce as Wasim is being accused of trying to create a controversy for publicity.

Even Babita Phogat, whose elder sister's role was played by Zaira in Dangal, has stood up for her. "If the owners of such companies do not take suitable action against such employees their conduct will never change", Gorhe said. "Zaira, you don't need to be afraid of anyone and just be "dhaakad" (bold) in real life as well".
