Nagpur: Now here comes another definition of molestation. If you hold someone’s hand it also accounts for molestation! Atleast the two air hostesses on a Jet Airways flight no.9S24460 mean so… The two air hostesses had alleged that a 23-year-old drunk hardware trader had grabbed their hands while on flight. The passenger has been identified as Akash Gupta who travelled in Mumbai-Nagpur flight on Saturday. The air hostesses gave a written complaint to the flight captain against the accused who was travelling on seat no. 41E.
The captain, Gopalsingh Mohansingh, 42, informed the Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) about the incident and handed over Gupta, a native of Balaghat in Madhya Pradesh, to them. CISF contacted the Sonegaon police who arrested Gupta and registered an offence of outraging of modesty under section 354 of Indian Penal Code (IPC). Cops interrogated Gupta and on Sunday produced him before the court which sent him to magisterial custody.
Gupta had gone to Goa on a vacation. On return journey, he boarded the Jet Airways flight for Nagpur at Mumbai airport. Cops said Gupta, who had probably consumed liquor in Mumbai, grabbed the hand of the two air hostesses when they were serving him meal. The air hostesses immediately informed other crew members who stopped Gupta. But he argued with them too, so they informed the captain.
