Dangal actress, Zaira Wasim was allegedly molested on a Delhi-Mumbai flight yesterday. It was devastating as we saw Zaira’s posts and video on her Instagram handle. In the posts and video, she shared the shocking incident which happened while she was on-board. Zaira shared that the man sitting behind her started rubbing his foot on her back and neck while she was half asleep.
Here is all what she posted about the horrifying incident on her Instagram handle:
In her live Instagram 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 going to take care of girls? No one will help us if we don’t decide to help ourselves. This is the worst thing.”
17-year-old Zaira looked completely traumatized in her video. Zaira was traveling by Vistara and the airlines tweeted in her support. They shared, “We @airvistara have seen the reports regarding Zaira Wasim’s experience with another customer on board last night. We are carrying out detailed investigation and will support Zaira in every way required. We have zero tolerance for such behaviour.”
An FIR has been registered at the Sahar Police Station and a case has been filed under section 354 and POCSO act as Zaira is a minor. Vikas Sachdeva, the accused has been taken into custody by the police and recently his wife Divya Sachdeva spoke to a news portal and shared that it is Zaira’s publicity stunt. Divya said, “This girl has been influenced by fame and wrongly accused my husband Vikas. My husband was coming home from Delhi. His mamaji 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. They came home this morning. Why did Zaira not raise an alarm then and there? Why did Zaira tweet 2 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 9-year-old child Vikas can never misbehave with any lady in any manner.”
People are fuming in anger to see such an act and are pouring in support of Zaira. However, some people are also annoyed with the fact that Zaira didn’t speak up immediately or brought the matter to the crew’s attention there and then. Whatever it may be, this incident has made us fall short of words and somehow come as an eye-opener for all of us.
