Jammu: Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Sunday said she was appalled to hear about the molestation of a Bollywood actress on board a Delhi-Mumbai flight by a co-passenger.

"Any harassment or crime against women should be dealt with swiftly and effectively," she wrote on her Twitter page reacting to the actress' statement.

As a mother of two daughters, "I am appalled" at what happened with her, Mehbooba said. She urged the authorities to take strict action.

The 17-year-old actress complained about her ordeal, claiming that a middle-aged man seated behind her moved his foot up and down her neck and back on a Vistera flight.
