A Delhi University student on Monday filed a police complaint at Vasant Vihar Police station alleging a man of molesting her on board a crowded DTC bus.
The victim has also uploaded a video of the incident showing the man sitting next to her and apparently masturbating.
“I was travelling in crowded bus when a man sitting next to me masturbated. I was left stunned but then I made a video of the incident & posted it on social media to make people aware of the incident,” the DU student said.
“People don't even consider something like this a form of sexual harassment,” she added sharing her traumatic experience.
After recording the video, the girl deboarded the bus in South Delhi and went to the Vasant Vihar Police station to lodge an FIR.
So far, the accused has not been identified in the case but the police suspect the perpetrator could be a local and trying to nab him.
"Had seen her shocking tweet and assisted her in getting FIR filed. That act caught on video was too sick. Worst is no one in bus came to her aid. Had called SHO Vasant Vihar to ensure imm arrest. This man is a danger to society and shud b given strong punishment!," Swati Jai Hind, Chairperson, Delhi Commission for Women said.
This is not the first time when such a nauseating and abominable incident have taken place. Earlier in March last year, a Delhi University student was masturbated on by an unidentified man during a college fest.
The Delhi govt, when elected to power, made big claims of installing CCTV camera’s and deploying a marshal in all the DTC buses for women’s safety.
However, the incident put a big question mark on the Kejriwal govt and its claims of providing safety and security to the women in DTC buses.
