A passenger allegedly masturbated in front of a Delhi based woman journalist while sitting next to her inside a bus on the night of Nov 20 at around 9.15 pm in South Delhi. The woman journalist claimed that she then started beating up the man with her slippers and called up the police. While all this was happening no fellow passenger tried to intervene or came for help even when the woman raised an alarm. One person who tried to help later on declined to be a witness. The police booked the man for obscene behaviour.
The man worked as a labour at tent contractor’s office. The incident highlights the risks and vulgarity women commuters in the capital have to face especially while travelling in buses.
