外文标题：Indian held for molesting Japanese teenager on Tokyo-Kolkata flight
KOLKATA: A Japanese teenager travelling to Kolkata from Tokyo in a Thai Airways flight has alleged she was molested in the dead of night by an Indian passenger. The accused, 57-year-old Narain Singh, has been arrested.
It was around 1am on Friday when most passengers were fast asleep and the plane cruising over the Bay of Bengal that the 19-year-old girl said she felt the co-passenger's hand brush against her. The first time she gave him the benefit of doubt even though she felt it wasn't accidental. The next time she was certain that it was deliberate and decided to put her foot down.
The girl reported the matter to a flight attendant, who changed her seat and informed the captain. Minutes after the touchdown, the captain alerted the airline security, who in turn sought help from the CISF. The man was arrested and later handed over to Bidhannagar police.
"The airline staff approached the airport manager and complained that a girl had been molested by a co-passenger during the flight. The girl also made the complaint in writing. The manager then called police and handed over the accused," airport director BP Sharma said.
Police were initially reluctant to act, citing the girl's failure to lodge the complaint in person. Singh was finally arrested around noon after the airport manager and the airline staff lodged complaints. He is a frequent flier between Kolkata and Bangkok and lives in Salt Lake.
According to police, Singh pleaded innocence during interrogation and claimed he had fallen asleep and accidentally brushed against the girl while stretching after waking up. "This is a typical excuse made by perverts," said an air-hostess.
Japanese consul general Mitsuo Kawaguchi said the incident had been brought to his notice. "We are trying to ascertain the facts," he said.

It is a shame that this male passenger Narain Singh did such a thing to a female Japanese passenger. It is a disgrace to India. The excuse he gave is totally unacceptable. He should be jailed.

Accidental touching is not ruled out while travelling in economy class, specially on long flights. But knowing Indian men, it is unlikely. Indian girls should learn such intolerance against any form of molestation.

The act of Mr. Narain Singh can not be out-rightly termed as deliberate . Simple allegation by the victim can not slap charges on an accused.

Hasty public hangings must be avoided. First the alleged crime has to be proven. Does this man have any prior records? Does the accuser have any criminal records? Let's not condemn anyone based on she said, he said type of accusation. Yes India, this does not look good.

There are many bleeding hearts who always speak up on the side of criminals. Are you suggesting that the accused should be allowed to go free till all the questions you have raised are answered?

How can you trust this girl? This is disgusting, Anyway, her seat was changed as soon as she complained and it might be accidental. They should have let him go after a warning, but arresting a 57 year old frequent flier based on an accusation from a Japanese teen is totally unacceptable. I have been to japan and stayed there as well, and I can assure you that Japanese teens are not trustworthy. This is the problem with our police as well, if any foreigner complains immediate action is taken against Indians,

Such high flying perverts should not be allowed to go scott free. Let him sit in jail for some days and let his image be pasted across all airports in India. Only then will such men learn to mend their ways.
