A Delhi woman on Sunday grabbed her eve teaser by the collar, slapped him and dragged him to a police station. The incident occurred in West Delhi on February 25 when a woman grabbed the harasser who was making obscene comments in a crowded market and took him to the police station. The woman was walking with her friend in Ghaffar Market, Karol Bagh when the incident took place.
A group of four to five men started following the woman and her friend. In order to avoid them, both the ladies reportedly got into a cycle-rickshaw. The group allegedly did not leave them alone and followed the rickshaw while passing cheap remarks to the women. What happened next shocked many. The woman reportedly got down from the rickshaw and started slapping one of the harassers. She then dragged the accused to the police station and lodged an FIR against the person.
Cops have arrested two men in connection with the incident. They have been identified as Abhishek and Manish who belong to Charkhi Dadri, Haryana. Earlier, two months ago, a shocking CCTV footage showed that two women, including a journalist, were molested inside the ITO Metro station. According to the police reports, the accused was drunk. He first passed obscene comments at her and then touched her inappropriately, as per an NDTV report.
