An American woman during an Emirates flight from Dubai to New York has been molested by a middle-aged man while she was having a much needed sleep.
The woman had fallen into deep sleep after ingesting anti-anxiety medication an hour into the flight. When she woke up, Quraishi, had asked her, “whether she had a good nap.”
She became aware of the assault when she noticed her hand lotion, which she placed in the seat pocket in front of her was missing. She then noticed lotion was “spread on her arms, chest, and up her legs.” She walked to the bathroom and felt sore, and observed “her underwear had been shifted and that lotion was in her vaginal area and on her underwear.”
She immediately reported the incident through tears, to the flight attendants.
42 year old Nadeem Mehmood Quraishi, who sat next to her in Economy class, admitted to touching the lady and brazenly said she “needed it” and “enjoyed it because she did not resist.” He also added, “it happened to him as a child.”
The man was arrested on arrival at JFK – John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, where the case is in federal court.
