Maharashtra State Commission for Women’s (MSCW) chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar says they will seek a detailed inquiry into it from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
A Bollywood actor on Sunday alleged that she was molested by a co-passenger on an Air Vistara flight from Delhi to Mumbai.
Based on the 17-year-old actor's statement, a case has been registered at Mumbai’s Sahar police station against the unknown person under IPC section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, since the actor is a minor, Sahar’s senior police inspector Lata Shirsat said.
Terming the incident as “shameful”, Maharashtra State Commission for Women’s (MSCW) chairperson Vijaya Rahatkar said they will seek a detailed inquiry into it from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
“The commission will direct the DGCA to conduct an inquiry in the matter and will also inquire into the steps taken by Vistara to address the complaint,” Ms. Rahatkar said.
