There are witnesses claiming that the innocent men just happened to put his foot on the armrest and that was the only crime he committed. If anybody is going to put his foot on my armrest it’s open to interpretation that is this emotional harassment or sexual or personal. Because you are in my intimate space so I’m going to interpret it. Fellow passengers can’t tell me that it’s an innocent leg resting sort of gesture.” ALSO READ: Bollywood Actress Molested: Co-Passenger Claims The Accused Is Innocent
