Television actress and popularly known as Ichcha from Colors’ show Uttaran, Tinaa Dattaa had a terrific experience during a flight due to sexual harassment.
Tinaa Dattaa claims that while boarding a Jet Airways flight, she was sexually harassed by a man who tried touching her inappropriately last morning. This act brought her in a state of shock and she expressed her disappointment by claiming that the flight staff didn’t take a serious action against the act.
Tinaa Dattaa told the sources that when she narrated the incident to the staff members, they didn’t seem to respond to her in an appropriate manner. Instead, they just changed the seat of the passenger for her comfort and said that such incidents are normal and usual.
Tinaa Dattaa then decided to express her disappointment by narrating and making the incident viral through her Facebook post.
Here’s a piece of her content where Tinaa Dattaa has narrated the incident.
YESTERDAY morning I was traveling to Rajkot with Jet Airways 9W 7001, departure time 10:25 am from Mumbai. I have experienced a horrible experience which I would like to narrate and go viral about it.
I boarded my flight and was allotted seat no 30A and my manager was seated on 30C, we were discussing some work related topic when suddenly I felt that someone was trying to sneak their hands through the sides. A passenger seated on seat 31A by the name of Rajesh tried to fiddle with me and started touching me inappropriately, at first I thought it’s a kid but when I turned behind I was horrified to see it was a full grown man, I yelled at him and he was stammering and was ashamed and apologized. I called for the air hostess Miss. Pooja & Mr. Abhijeet to intervene in the matter, but they were not at all helpful instead they had the audacity to tell me such things happen and they will change the man’s seat.
I demanded for the man to be deported but I was told that I should also deport to file a complaint, I demanded to speak to the captain after much persuasion was I allowed to speak to him, Mr. Jagjeevan Singh was not friendly his reaction was one of a disgusted person, his reply to the whole matter was, before take off they are not responsible for anything that happens post take off they would take responsibility , my question being had this happened with their family members would they still be so calm about the matter. I felt so Violated and yet no one was there to support except one family in the entire aircraft, we as Indians do not care for the safety of our fellow beings, the entire flight did not stand up for this except that family. Is there no safety measures for your passengers?? Is this how you are treated and I get to hear all sorts of excuses how the matter is not on their (captain) jurisdiction and nothing can be done and apparently this is very common in flights (according to the air hostess). Finally after much arguments I had no say as no one came forth for my help.
Tinaa Dattaa seems to be highly disappointed by the staff and Jet Airways. Let’s see how true are these allegations and know how Jet management ha to react over this.
