New Delhi: In yet another incident mocking Delhi's claim of being the 'safest' for women, a young woman was allegedly eve-teased and heckled at by a man, who threatened her with dire consequences after she resisted his attempt to harass her.
Reports on Monday said that the victim, Jasleen Kaur, was travelling in West Delhi's Tilak Nagar around 8 pm on Sunday when a man, riding a Royal Enfield with the number DL 4S CE 3623, passed objectionable remarks at her.
When Jasleen confronted him and told him that she will file a complain, the man posed for the picture saying "Do whatever you want to. Just wait and watch what I would do to you if you complain against me."
However, instead of staying mum, Jasleen decided to take matter in her own hands and shared her story on Facebook.
As per Kaur, it wasn't just his obscene comments, but also his sheer audacity and the inaction of the people around her that spurred her to share her story and shame the offender.
Jasleen's post has gone viral ever since she shared it on social media following which an FIR was registered against the accused under sections 354(a), 506 and 509.
Media reports claimed that Sarabjet Singh, the man in question, has been arrested now.
The accused has been booked under Sections 354A (punishment for sexual harassment) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of IPC, said a senior police official.
Singh is a resident of the Paschimpuri area of west Delhi.
Reacting to the development, the girl thanked the media for taking up the issue and Delhi Police for swift action in the case. She also urged the people in general not to be just onlookers in cases like eve-teasing.
Importantly, Deputy Commissioner of Police (West) Pushpendra Kumar also today said that Jasleen Kaur will be given 5000 rupees for her bravery.
