Teenage actress molestation case accused gets three years jail

The courts have sentenced a forty one year old businessman to three years jail for molesting a teenage actress while onboard a flight. The accused is Vikas Sachdev and the victim who acted in a global hit movie with a A List Indian star has since quit movies.

The actress who was at that time only 17 in 2017 had shared her ordeal on an Instagram post "So, I was in a flight travelling from Delhi to Mumbai today and right behind me one middle-aged man who made my two-hour journey miserable. I tried to record it on phone to understand it better because the cabin lights were dimmed, I failed to get it..." she said. "The lights were dimmed, so it was even worse. It continued for another five to ten minutes and then I was sure of it. He kept nudging my shoulder and continued to move his foot up and down my back and neck,"

The girl had added "This is not done, I am disturbed... Is this how you're going to take care of girls? This is not the way anybody should be made to feel. This is terrible! "No one will help us if we don't decide to help ourselves. And this is the worst thing,".

The Mumbai court did not heed Vikas Sachdev's council who had stated that he was first time offender and the sole breadwinner of his family while his wife had claimed that "My husband is a family man. He is innocent. He was mentally exhausted as he was returning after attending the funeral of his uncle (in Delhi). "He was taking rest and was fast asleep when his leg accidentally touched the girl. Vikas apologized to the actor before getting out of the plane to which she said it was okay,"
