Earlier, the airline had submitted an initial report to the DGCA.

The source also said that no action has been taken against any staffer as no one has been found guilty of any violation.

When contacted, Vistara spokesperson was not available for comment.

"We are deeply concerned and regret the unfortunate experience Zaira Wasim had onboard our flight last night. We continue to give this case our highest attention and are extending our full support to all relevant authorities for the investigations underway," the airline had said in a statement on 10 December.

The Dangal actor, who had narrated her ordeal on the Vistara flight from Delhi to Mumbai on Instagram, had said that a passenger sitting behind her put his feet on her armrest.

In the video, which Wasim recorded immediately after deboarding the flight, the 17-year-old actor broke down several times.
