They say times have changed, India’s moving forward, people are changing, so are the minds, and streets are becoming safer for Women. But why do people say so? Don’t they read? Don’t the roam? It’s 2019 and the streets are still filled with sexual predators. Be it harassing someone inside a temple, or asking the passenger to sit on the lap, these douchebags don’t leave anyone.
A woman from Mumbai took to her social media to narrate a monstrous incident of sexual harassment.
A user on Instagram, Debaleena Saha, shared an appalling video of a horrible ride she had in Mumbai. The women took a local cab to Nariman Point while returning from Siddhi Vinayak.
According to her post, the incident took place at around 9:30 in the morning when she boarded the ‘local taxi’ with her family.
“This driver as soon as I got into this local taxi, opens his zip, was staring at me objectifying& was stimulating his genitals.”
In the video, the woman can be heard saying she wants to deboard the taxi in the middle of her trip but the driver denies to stop. The driver also puts his hand on her seat with intentions of touching her inappropriately.
The contemptible deed of the taxi driver has caused fury and netizens, including celebs, are reacting to it.
The woman filed an FIR and in her recent update of stories, she confirmed about the arrest saying,
“Proud of Mumbai Police for getting hold over that culprit last night.”
