The man accused of molesting Bollywood actress Zaira Wasim on a flight has been arrested.
NDTV reports that the alleged incident took place on a flight from Delhi to Mumbai last night. The 17 year old actress posted a video on Instagram, saying how the man was rubbing his foot against her back and neck while she was half asleep.
In the video, she said, “So, I just landed and you know the whole irony of this is that the guy… this is not done at all. This is not the way, this is not a girl should be made to feel because this is terrible. Is this how they are doing to take care of girls? No one will help us if we don’t decide to help ourselves. This is the worst thing.”
Wasim said she was trying to snap a picture of the accused but was unable due to dimmed lights, “Managed to get this (shot of the molester’s foot). The lights were dimmed so it was even worse. It continued for another 5-10 minutes and then I was sure of it. He kept nudging my shoulder and continued to move his foot up and down my back and neck,” she posted.
“I tried to record it on my phone to understand it better. But because the cabin lights were dimmed, I failed to get it. I ignored it the first time, blamed the turbulence for it. Until I woke up to this pleasant sight of his beautiful foot rubbing my back and neck… Guess he couldn’t sit like a civilized human being and placed his foot on my arm rest while he’s fully ‘pheloaed’ his body on his seat (sic)” she added.
