The actress who was allegedly molested on the flight from Delhi to Mumbai by a co-passenger who was seated behind her has been arrested after 8-months. The accused was recently arrested after the Sahar Police and presented in Dindoshi court.

The actress had shared the video on her social media about how the 39-year-old Vikas Sachdeva, who was seated behind her had moved his foot around her neck and back on the flight. The accused was arrested recently under section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act of the Indian Penal Code.

Sachdeva was later granted a bail, he said in his defence that he was tired after attending a funeral in Delhi and had fallen off to sleep. Addressing the accusation about the Bollywood actress, Sachdeva’s legal team also questioned that if the actress felt that way, why didn’t she inform the flight staff about it?
