Man pleasures self before woman at metro station in Gurugram
Gurugram: A 29-year-old interior designer has alleged that a man masturbated before her when she was climbing down an escalator at the Huda City Centre Metro Station complex in Gurugram on Friday. The Delhi-based woman said she had gone to visit a friend in Gurugram on June 14 and the incident happened when she came out of a clothing store on the first floor of the metro station.
The complainant asserted that she approached Gurugram Police later that night, however, her ordeal invoked no response. She then decided to bring the matter to the DMRC. Acting on her complaint, officials of the Delhi Metro reached out to her on Sunday and asked her to examine the CCTV footage in order to establish the identity of the culprit.
The woman has expressed fear about her safety after singling out the accused, adding that she is yet to take a call on whether to file a first information report in this regard. Taking to social media on Monday, the complainant raised the question of the safety of female passengers in the Metro premises. Taking cognisance of her tweets, the Gurugram Police approached her and requested her to file a written complaint against the man.
In her complaint to the police, the woman stated that the incident took place at around 9:30 pm on June 14 when she came out of a clothing store located on the first floor of the Huda City Centre Metro Station complex. "I was climbing down the escalator when I realised that a man had masturbated on me," she said. She also added that the culprit flashed at her and even hurled expletives at her on being confronted.
The complainant claimed that she ran towards a police chowki right outside the metro station but the chowki was closed and there was no police personnel present at the spot.
