The police on Saturday arrested an elderly man for allegedly flashing onboard a bus after his video doing the criminal act was posted on the Facebook page of Kolkata police.

One of the victims who was the object of the perverted man's act recorded the video and posted it on the Facebook page of Kolkata police.

The victim on her Facebook post revealed that 15 days ago they had to suffer the ordeal when the man had put down his pants and had shown his genitals to them.

“When we protested and asked the bus conductor to take action, he ignored our pleas. Fifteen days back when the person had made vulgar gestures we could not do anything as we did not have any proof. Today we have these two videos as proof and we want justice,” the victim said on her Facebook post.

The Kolkata police had assured them that the culprit would be arrested and punished after they came to know about the incident.

Acting swiftly, the police arrested the man hailing from Baidyabati in Hooghly district within hours of the matter was posted by the victims.

“We don’t need any written complaint. The videos posted on our Facebook page is enough for us. We have already lodged a case. We are trying to track down the culprit,” the Kolkata police had said on their Facebook page before the man was arrested.
