The video which is doing the rounds on social media is one shot by a woman as she takes a man to task for allegedly trying to touch her on a flight to Bhuvaneshwar. “You think if we girls keep quiet, you can do anything you want?,” she says in the video as the man looks away from the camera. While the man can be heard apologising for his actions, the woman yells out demanding to know what kind of forgiveness he was looking for When she threatens to call the security and make a complaint about it , the man can be heard apologising. "I will not leave you, don't think," she can be heard saying.  In another video , of the same incident, the man can be heard saying that he is willing to write a written apology for touching the woman in question.  This story is not an isolated case. One in many similar incidents that young girls and women face everyday at work, on the way to work and outside in public, it shows the growing trend of women coming out and tackling harassment without staying silent. However, the accused, a 60 year-old businessman RK Jhunjhunwala, who was arrested on January 27 after the woman's complaint refuted the charges saying that he had touched her hand due to a jerk when the plane was landing, reported Hindustan Times. He said that he had to apologise despite not doing anything wrong because the woman had created a big commotion, said the report.   Tweet Follow @thenewsminute
