Actress molested on flight: A Mumbai based actor was allegedly molested by a businessman on a Delhi-Mumbai flight earlier this month. The accused in the case was taken into custody recently after the actor filed a complaint with the police.
The 40-year-old actor was travelling back to Mumbai from Delhi on October 3. When her flight landed at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport at 11 am, she got up to retrieve her handbag from the overhead cabin. The woman alleged that an unknown person then grabbed her by her waist and pulled her towards him.
The woman raised an alarm in anger and duly alerted the cabin crew, which then asked the accused to step aside and noted down his name and seat number. The crew then directed the actor to file a formal complaint with the airline’s customer relations team via email. After sending her mail to the airline that very evening, the woman then approached Versova police station to file a complaint. She was then directed to Sahar police station, as the area where the incident took place came under its jurisdiction.
Once the FIR was registered, police reached out to the airline which informed them that the passenger had revealed his name to be Rajeev. The airline also shared his contact details, as well as that of those who were travelling with him. After police reached out to him, Rajeev alleged that he was not involved in the case and went on to share a photograph of himself with his fellow travellers. From the photograph, the actor identified another traveller, who was identified as Nitin.
After establishing his involvement in crime, Nitin’s name was added to the FIR. The 36-year-old was taken into custody by Sahar Police on October 14, as per a report by Times Of India.
