Mumbai: Sexual harrasment is a daily struggle for women travelling in India. We are flocked by stories of women who are attacked by harrasers in buses, trains and other modes of public transport. But a new video that has surfaced on the internet shockingly highlights that flights are not safe either. The video which is shot by the victim herself, claims that the man in the clip allegedly harassed her sexually on board Indigo flight en route Bhubaneshwar.
The incident was reported on 30 January, 2014. The girl alleges that the man seated behind her started touching her inappropriately from the seat gap during the flight.
The man kept making passes as the lady was unable to react to the indecent behaviour at first, due to a sudden shock. However, as soon as the flight landed, she caught him red handed while he was once again prepared to touch her. Thereafter, she got up from her seat and humiliated her harasser in the public, capturing him on mobile camera simultaneously.
The video was posted on social media by user Shreyas Rao. According to the video caption, the Indigo-staff was helpful throughout, and police supported her too.
