She narrated her ordeal on Instagram via a 'live' video where she alleged that a guy on the flight molested her and she complained but no crew member came to help.

The 17-year-old National Award winner wrote, "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".
