ZAIRA1wNEW DELHI/ MUMBAI:  “Dangal” actress Zaira Wasim has detailed a harrowing experience of being allegedly molested by a middle-aged man while she was on a flight from Delh-Mumbai.
The 17-year-old National Award winner shared her ordeal via an Instagram Story. “Managed to get this,” Zaira posted with a snapshot of the man’s foot, which was rested on her arm rest. The star of “Secret Superstar” then added:

“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. “So, I was in a flight travelling from Delhi to Mumbai today and right behind me one middle-aged man who made my two-hour journey miserable.
I tried to record it on phone to understand it better because the cabin lights were dimmed, I failed to get it. “It was all chill till I felt somebody brushing against my back while I was half asleep.
Zaira, in an Instagram post, said the man was rubbing his foot against her back and neck while she was half asleep. The Mumbai Police have recorded her statement and filed a case against the accused.
The actor posted a video on the social media platform a little after midnight in which she narrated the harrowing incident onboard the Air Vistara flight, tears rolling down her cheeks.
“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,” she said, voice quivering, in the Instagram live video.
Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti today said she was appalled by the incident wherein ‘Dangal’ fame actress Zaira Wasim was allegedly molested on a flight, and sought swift action in the matter.
The actor has alleged that she was molested by a co- passenger on board a Delhi-Mumbai flight and narrated her ordeal on Instagram via live video.
“Any harassment/crime against women shld (should) be dealt with swiftly & (and) effectively.As a mother of 2 (two) daughters I am appalled at what happened with @zairawasimz. Hope relevant authorities take strict action,” Mehbooba wrote on Twitter.
