Divya Sachdev, wife of accused in Zaira Wasim molestation case said, the Dangal actress is only doing a publicity stunt by blaming her husband of molesting her on the flight.
“This girl has been influenced by fame and wrongly accused my husband Vikas,” said Divya as saying.
39-year-old Vikas was arrested yesterday after a huge public outcry over the incident prompted the Maharashtra State Commission for Women to seek an enquiry into the “shameful” incident.
Divya said that her husband was coming to Mumbai from Delhi. “His mama ji had passed away and he was not in the right frame of mind. He was feeling very low and asked for a blanket. He wanted to sleep. I am shocked at Zaira’s allegation. The police have taken my husband into custody.”
“Why did Zaira not raise an alarm then and there? Why did Zaira tweet two hours later? Zaira had her mother for company. Despite that, the two ladies chose not to make any noise, why?”
“My father is an ex-Army officer and my father-in-law is an ex-Income Tax officer. We know how important it is to respect a lady, our family upholds very high values. My husband is a family man. We have a nine-year-old child. Vikas can never misbehave with any lady in any manner” she added.
“We are deeply concerned and regret the unfortunate experience Zaira Wasim had onboard our flight last night. We continue to give this case our highest attention and are extending our full support to all relevant authorities for the investigations underway,” the airline said in the statement issued late last evening.
“Any harassment/crime against women should be dealt with swiftly and effectively. As a mother of two daughters, I am appalled at what happened with @zairawasimz. Hope the relevant authorities take strict action,” she tweeted.
