Zaira, who belongs to Kashmir, shot into limelight after the role of a child wrestler in the movie “Dangal”.
Former Chief Minister and National Conference leader Omar Abdullah also demanded legal action against the unidentified man accused of “molesting” Zaira.
Omar Abdullah tweeted; “The passenger should be identified to the police by @airvistara & a case filed for legal action. None of this ‘he fell at my feet so I forgive him’ rubbish!”.
