New Delhi, February 12

The Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) has ensured the registration of an FIR in the matter of sexual harassment of a Delhi University student in a moving bus.

“The student was travelling in the bus, when a man sitting beside her started masturbating. She recorded the incident in her mobile phone and posted it on Twitter,” said a commission official.

He said the girl had tagged DCW chief Swati Jai Hind and others in the tweet. “When the DCW chief watched the video, she spoke to the girl via twitter. Next day a DCW team assisted her in registering her FIR,” official added.

The DCW chairperson, who spoke to Vasant Vihar SHO and ensured that her FIR is registered, said, “I saw her shocking tweet and the act caught on video was too sick. I immediately ensured registration of her FIR. Worst is no one in the bus came to her aid. This man is a danger to society and should be given strong punishment!”

An FIR has been registered in the Vasant Vihar Police Station and the accused is still at large, said the official.
