The National Commission for Women in Delhi has demanded a probe into the incident. It has also said it is sending a notice to Air Vistara for not getting the accused arrested.
Mumbai Police on Sunday arrested the man who allegedly molested Dangal girl Zaira Wasim. 39-year-old Vikas Sachdeva was arrested by the Sahar police on Sunday night in connection with the molestation of a teen actor in a Vistara Airlines flight.
Sachdeva is placed as a senior executive with an entertainment company in Mumbai. He has been booked under section 354 (Assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of IPC, and relevant sections of Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (POCSO) since the actor is a minor and will be produced before the Andheri magistrate court on Monday.
Divya Sachdev, the wife of Vikas Sachdev has accused the Dangal actress of doing a publicity stunt. Twitter is horrified over Zaira Wasim’s revelation that she was molested on a flight. “This girl has been influenced by fame and wrongly accused my husband Vikas,” said Divya.
39-year-old Vikas prompted the Maharashtra State Commission for Women to seek an inquiry into the “shameful” incident. Talking about it, Divya said that her husband was coming to Mumbai from Delhi. “His mama Ji had passed away and he was not in the right frame of mind. He was feeling very low and asked for a blanket. He wanted to sleep. I am shocked at Zaira’s allegation. The police have taken my husband into custody.”
“Why did Zaira not raise an alarm then and there? Why did Zaira tweet two hours later? Zaira had her mother for company. Despite that, the two ladies chose not to make any noise, why? My father is an ex-Army officer and my father-in-law is an ex-Income Tax officer. We know how important it is to respect a lady, our family upholds very high values. My husband is a family man. We have a nine-year-old child. Vikas can never misbehave with any lady in any manner.”
She also told that her husband was “innocent and had no intention to molest. He hadn’t slept for 24 hours. He had asked the crew not to disturb and wanted to sleep. His foot was on the armrest, but not with an intention to harass,” said the wife of the accused. “We want justice,” she added.
