NCW has asked for a strict action in the case.

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said she was appalled to hear about the molestation of a teenage Bollywood actor on board a Delhi-Mumbai flight by a co-passenger.

Any harassment or crime against women should be dealt with swiftly and effectively, she wrote on her Twitter page reacting to the actor’s statement.

As a mother of two daughters, “I am appalled” at what happened with the actor, she said. She urged the authorities to take strict action.

The 17-year-old actor complained about her ordeal, claiming that a middle-aged man seated behind her moved his foot up and down her neck and back.
