Saath Nibhana Saathiya actress Pratibha Tiwari, known in the show as Naiya, was molested by a drunk man in Mumbai recently. The TV actress was with her hairdresser at the busy Kandivali highway in the city when the incident happened.

She was waiting for a colleague when the drunk stranger approached them. He behaved inappropriately with Pratibha, following which the gutsy actress dragged him to a nearby police station and lodged a FIR. The man was allegedly drunk but it gave him no excuse to behave in such a way.

Later, talking to Times of India, the actress asked other women to do the same if they face a similar situation. “It’s surprising that such an incident could occur on a busy road at 10 pm. It was shocking but a revelation, too. I learnt that women are scared to lodge a complaint in these cases, but I would urge them to fight it out,” she said. The actress sure led by example and ensured that the culprit is not allowed to go scot-free.

Pratibha Tiwari first found fame with the show, Tujhse Naraz Nahi Zindagi. She has also appeared in Phir Bhi Na Maane… Badtameez Dil. She has appeared in a number of commercials as well.

At present, she plays the character of Naiya in Saath Nibhana Saathiya which has negative shades. Saath Nibhana Saathiya is Star Plus’s longest running show. She plays the role of Amar Upadhyay’s daughter whose aim is to kill the child of her brother and sister-in-law.

      If women retaliate against molesters and murder them or incapacitate them for life thenlt;br/gt;the law should protect such women.
