New Delhi: The biker, who was arrested on Monday after he harassed and intimidated a young woman in Delhi Tilak Nagar's area, was released on bail last night.
The biker was booked on charges of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation.
Police said Delhi University student Jasleen Kaur was abused at a traffic signal in Tilak Nagar area in Delhi at around 8 pm on Sunday.
"We have registered an FIR against the biker under Sections 354(a), 506 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code. Investigation has begun and teams have been sent to arrest the accused," a police official had said.
"A man made obscene comments at me today (Sunday) at around 8 pm near Aggarwal, Tilak Nagar. He was on a silver Royal Enfield, vehicle number DL 4S CE 3623. When I told him I am clicking his picture and I'm going to file a complaint against him, he responded by posing for a picture and said, "Jo kar sakti hai kar le. Complaint karke dikha, fir dekhiyo kya karta hun main (Do whatever you like. Complain and see what I do then)," Jasleen said in her Facebook post.
She said what disturbed her more than the obscene remarks was that 20 passers-by heard what the accused said and no one intervened. "No one stood up for me," the complainant said.
Reacting to the incident, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the alleged abuse of Delhi University student by a youth on a motorcycle was "unacceptable".
Congratulate @jasleenkaur89 for her bravery. Girls of Delhi should follow her & speak up against such unacceptable acts
