Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said she was appalled by the incident wherein ‘Dangal’ fame actress Zaira Wasim was allegedly molested on a flight, and sought swift action in the matter.

The National Award winning actor has alleged that she was molested by a co-passenger on board a Delhi-Mumbai Vistara Arilnes flight and narrated her ordeal on Instagram-via-live video.

Zaira said she was on an Air Vistara flight from Delhi to Mumbai when a co-passenger sitting behind her put up his feet on her armrest.

Any harassment/crime against women should be dealt with swiftly and effectively.As a mother of two daughters I am appalled at what happened with Zaira Wasim. Hope relevant authorities take strict action, Mehbooba wrote on Twitter.

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!”.
