Dangal girl Zaira Wasim has alleged that she was molested on an Air Vistara flight by a man sitting behind her. The video of Zaira with tears rolling down her face has now gone viral on social media platforms.
Zaira said in the video, “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,”
Later she posted a photo, which she said was of her alleged molester’s foot.
She wrote, “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 added, “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)”
Air Vistara has said that it has launched an investigation in Zaira’s complaint. The airline tweeted, “We @airvistara have seen the reports regarding @ZairaWasimmm 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 behavior,”
