He will be produced in a magistrate court on Monday.
The Sahar police registered a case under Section 354 of the IPC for outraging a woman's modesty and relevant Sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act. "Also, a copy to DGP Maharashtra to act against Vistara Airlines", ANI quoted Sharma as saying.
The Commonwealth gold medalist added the incident should not be left limited to an Instagram story.
The man accused of molesting Bollywood actress Zaira Wasim on a flight has been arrested.
"We are deeply concerned and regret the unfortunate experience Zaira Wasim had onboard our flight last night".
Vistara Airlines has submitted an initial incident report to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) on the molestation incident alleged by actress Zaira Wasim, the airline company said in an official statement today.
The actor told the police that she tried to record the act, but since the lights in the cabin were dimmed it could not be captured clearly.
The lights were dimmed, so it was even worse. It continued for another 5-10 minutes and then I was sure of it.
The National Award winning Kashmiri actress complained about her ordeal on an Instagram live video, claiming that a middle-aged man seated behind her moved his foot up and down her neck and back. This is not done at all, I am disturbed, that is fine, but this is not how anybody should be made to feel!
She further opined, "Girls themselves should show courage to take a step forward when these kinds of incidents happen". In the clip, she can be heard saying that what the man did to her is awful and that such a behaviour is not done at all. "If we don't help ourselves, nobody will come ahead" Zaira ended her video.
Maharashtra State Commission for Women (MSCW) Chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar condemned it as a "shameful incident".
The 17-year-old also said that she received no help from the cabin crew when she alerted them. We have directed the Mumbai Police to look into the matter immediately.
Mufti took to Twitter, saying, "Any harassment or crime against women should be dealt with swiftly and effectively. None of this "he fell at my feet, so I forgive him" rubbish!". We are carrying out detailed investigation and would support Zaira in every way required.
Incidentally, Soti is followed on Twitter by BJP leaders Amit Malviya, Giriraj Singh and Meenakhsi Lekhi.
