On a recent flight from Bengaluru to Mumbai, a female passenger experienced an unsettling incident of inappropriate touch by a fellow male passenger. The incident occurred on the woman's early morning flight to Mumbai after she boarded the flight. Narrating, the incident on her social media handle, she said that two male passengers were already seated in the aisle and middle seats.
Despite expressing gratitude for them getting up to let her in, the male passenger in the middle seat appeared grumpy.
As the woman settled into her window seat, the male passenger in the middle seat spread his legs widely, inconveniencing both her and the aisle seat passenger. The discomfort escalated when she felt the man's fingers brushing against her thigh. Initially hesitant, she let it go, thinking it might have been an accidental touch.
