New Delhi: A woman has reported a serious case of sexual harassment in a crowded Delhi Metro's Yellow Line. As per her, while she was returning back to her home from office on Wednesday evening, one of her male co-passengers flashed his genital to her in the train.
In a series of tweets, she shared her experience alleging the unidentified co-passenger of sexual harassment.
In her very first tweet at 10.47 pm on Tuesday, the woman allegedly said, “I was sitting on the 2-seater at the end of 7th coach returning to Gurgaon on yellow line, & this man was standing facing me for quite sometime. I don’t know when he turned to bring his right profile to face me. I just saw his penis outside of his pant directed at me.(sic)”
In an another tweet, she wrote, “I don't know at which station this man got off. I just know that he did not get off her from the door in front of which he is standing in the pic. He walked towards the other side of the coach and I did not see him.”
She kept updating the development in the matter on Twitter and said, “Approached Ghitorni metro police station and 9.30 this morning. There was no lady constable there, but the male head constable present there was cordial and took the details and the picture from me. He said that he will forward it to trace it. But, he told he can't file an FIR.”
“I called up the women's helpline to ask where one should file an FIR in this case and she forwarded my complaint to the respective police station. Weirdly, I just received a call from the Ghitorni police station who informed me the complaint will be filed with them,” she said in a tweet.
Her last tweet read, “A sub-inspector from Ghitorni police station is on his way to file my complaint.”
The Delhi Rail Metro Corporation (DMRC) responded with a statement on its official Twitter handle, which read, “The matter is being looked into. However, in such cases passengers are requested to report the matter immediately to us at 155370 (DMRC Helpline number) or at 15565 (CISF Helpline number) or contact the nearest metro official so that immediate action can be taken.”
