3 incidents where social media helped victims of molestation

The 22-year-old boy named Sarabjit alias Honey who harassed Jasleen Kaur in Tilak Nagar, Delhi has been taken into custody by Delhi Police today.

According to Jasleen, he had verbally harassed her at a red light in the area. FIR has been registered against the accused under sections 354(a), 506 and 509. The accused has been booked under Sections 354A (punishment for sexual harassment) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman).

The man riding on a silver Royal Enfield posed for the picture and had the audacity to tell her, “Jo kar sakti hai kar le. Complaint karke dikha, fir dekhiyo kya karta hun main.” (Do whatever you want to do, if you complain against me then bear the consequences). Jasleen took the matter to social networking website Facebook and explained the incident.

The status posted by Jasleen has been shared by more than 7000 users. Delhi Police stated attempt to kiss isn’t molestation

Radhika P Singh from Delhi had posted a status on Facebook which went viral. She had posted a photograph of the offender, identified as Nikhil, narrating how he forcibly tried kissing Singh’s friend in Delhi’s Connaught Place area. The victim caught hold of him with the help of passersby and called the cops, which Singh says, ‘was the worst mistake’ as the police harassed her instead of the accused.
