Dangal actress Zaira Wasim, on Saturday (December 9) night, shared her ordeal via Instagram story claiming that a middle-aged man who was seated behind her on Vistara flight, moved his foot up and down her neck and back. The Mumbai Police have registered an FIR against the person, identified as Vikas Sachdeva, under section 354 IPC and POCSO Act in the alleged molestation case.

"We have recorded the statement of ZairaWasim and registering an offence accordingly," the Mumbai Police said.

The POCSO Act has been applied to Zaira's case because she is a minor. In the 17-year-old's case, the accused, if found guilty, can be sentenced to serve three to five years in prison.

Vistara Airlines has apologised and condemned the incident and said that it will investigate the issue and will support Zaira in every way required without disclosing the name of the passenger.

Zaira has alleged that a middle-aged man sitting behind her touched her inappropriately on her back and neck with his feet. The man allegedly rubbed his feet up and down on her back.

While many praised Zaira's action, which grabbed Mumbai Police's attention and they took the alleged molester into custody on Sunday morning, the wife of the accused seemed to be furious and called it a publicity stunt of Zaira.

Divya Sachdeva, the wife of the accused Vikas Sachdeva, spoke to SpotboyE. She 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."

The mystery has not been solved yet. While some sections of social media believe Zaira won't take such a big step just for publicity, it is also a fact that the celebrities tend to do things which will bring them in news again.
