A co-passenger in the business class, who was on the same flight as actor Zaira Wasim and accused Vikas Sachdeva, has said that Sachdeva is innocent.
In a statement to Sahar Police, the witness, who did not personally know Sachdeva, said that he “did not see” Sachdeva misbehaving with the actress.
“I was seated in the same… class in which the actor and the suspect (Sachdeva) flew from Delhi. The suspect did not seem to have done anything apart from his act of keeping his legs on the armrest of the seat where the actor was seated,” the co-passenger told Sahar police in a statement according to the Times of India.
“I saw Sachdeva doze off immediately after he settled in his seat after boarding the flight at Delhi. His fault was he kept his legs on the armrest, which was wrong. I did not see him misbehaving. He also apologized when the actor shouted at him when the flight landed at Mumbai airport and the matter was settled then,” he was quoted as saying.
Sachdeva, 39, the branch head of an entertainment major, has been arrested by Mumbai Police following a complaint by Dangal actor Zaira Wasim.
