According to Times of India, a passenger seated next to the woman repeatedly touched her. Unsure whether his actions were deliberate or unintentional, the woman tried to move away while still seated next to him. When the man continued to touch her inappropriately, she got up and informed the flight crew, who changed her seat. The flight commander, according to her, informed the air traffic controller about the incident before the flight landed in Mumbai.
"It was when the plane landed that I witnessed what actually the CISF stands for. A team of constables (including a lady) led by CISF Inspector Suvrat Vashishtha came inside the plane and, once I and the perpetrator de boarded, extremely efficiently and without drawing any unnecessary attention they took us to the arrival area where they took my version as well as questioned the man,'' she wrote in the email, a copy of which is with the Times of India.
The woman also told Mr Singh, in the email, that the CISF officers ensured a smooth transfer of the case to the Sahar police and guaranteed that the local police reached quickly and took down her statement.
She further added, "After much thought I am sending this mail to you... wanting to put across my gratitude for making me feel safe and secure and for realizing that despite the thankless job that cops do in society, behind the uniform, we do have exemplary individuals who not only fight crime but also enable victims to speak up".
The accused, 31-year-old Gurugram resident Mohit Kanvar, was arrested by Sahar Police for allegedly molesting the woman, reported Mid Day. Click for more trending news
