Delhi biker arrested after FB post of harassment goes viral

By NewsGram Staff-Writer

1280810.largeAfter a Facebook post on sexual harassment of a young girl went viral, the accused has been finally arrested.

Delhi University student was abused at a traffic signal in Tilak Nagar area in Delhi around 8 p.m. on Sunday. She lodged a police complaint and thereafter posted about the incident on Facebook.

Within 14 hours of posting the picture, police registered an FIR and started hunting the accused, Sarvjeet Singh. He was on a run and has been nabbed from Tilak Nagar. Singh has been arrested on charges of sexual harassment, criminal intimidation and use of word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman and investigation has begun under sections 354(a), 506 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code.

In her Facebook post, the victim said, “A man made obscene comments at me today (Sunday) at around 8 p.m. near 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 then see what I’ll do to you)”

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. I was trying to cross the road when I came in front of the bike. When I pointed at the red signal and said he should have stopped, he began making obscene remarks.”
