‘Uttaran’ actress Tina Dutta sexually harassed on flight


Tina Dutta of ‘Uttaran’ fame was sexually harassed by her co-passenger while travelling from Mumbai to Rajkot last morning. Her co-passenger seated behind her touched her improperly and when she informed the same to the airline crew, they told her that such  incidents happen very often.

Says Tina, “As soon as I sat down, I felt someone trying to sneak his hands through the side and touch me. I screamed at him. Taken aback, the man, identified as Rajesh, started stammering and apologised. Crew members intervened, but proved to be of little help. They had the audacity to tell me such things happen and that they will change the man’s seat.I demanded that he be offloaded, but was told that I would also have to get off to file a complaint.”

Tina then demanded to speak to the captain. “But he told me before take off, the crew is not responsible for anything that happens on board. I was appalled. Barring one family, no other passenger stood up for me.”

Tina Dutt, who rose to fame with telly soap, ‘Uttaran’ later starred in ‘Super Family 100’, ‘Comedy Night Bachao’, ‘Comedy Nights with Kapil’ and few more.
