Man Allegedly Masturbates On Delhi Bus, Thrashed By Girl, Arrested

The man has been arrested on charges of masturbating in front of a girl in a Delhi bus.


New Delhi: 

A ride in a public bus turned out to be a nightmare for a girl in Delhi when a man allegedly started masturbating in front of her.

According to the girl, the man remained unfazed even when she shouted at him and shamelessly continued his act. Adding to her disappointment was sheer lack of response from the fellow passengers.  She stood up, thrashed him and called up the police.

"No one on the bus helped me even when I was beating him. I had to do everything on my own," she told news agency ANI.

The man, identified as Mukesh Kumar Ranjan, has now been arrested and is being investigated. He works with an event management company.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Vijay Kumar told IANS that the accused was drunk at the time of incident. "He used force and tried to grab her hand," Mr Kumar said. "He masturbated in front of her. There were 25-30 passengers in the bus. She confronted him and sought help from other passengers but none came forward to help her," the officer added. 

The incident took place on Tuesday when the girl was traveling from Kapashera to Vasant Kunj.

Sexual harassment on public transport or in public places, in the form of touching, flashing and masturbation, is not uncommon in the capital

In a similar incident earlier this year, a man was caught masturbating on camera in a crowded Delhi bus. The student, who filmed the obscenity, approached people for help, but did not get any co-operation.
