Sexual harassment against women on public transport or in public places continues to happen across India. It was just in February when a disgusting incident, in which a man shamelessly carried out masturbation right next to a Delhi University student on a crowded DTC bus, hit headlines on several online portals after the woman posted the video on social media. A similar incident has happened yet again, this time in Kolkata.
A middle-aged man in Kolkata openly masturbated at two young girls in a public bus where many passengers were also traveling. The girls shot the video and uploaded it to social media along with the description of the incident. The shameful incident took place in the broke daylight at around 12.00 in the afternoon.
In the video, the middle-aged man was seen having so much fun himself, taking full pleasure in masturbating at the girls looking at them every time. The man even noticed the camera, but he didn’t dare to stop. Instead, he smiles and continued with his dirty act. The height of shamelessness!
One of the girls took to Facebook to reveal the incident in full with the video and this is what she has posted on the social media. The video will make your head hang in shame and your blood boil with anger.
The description of the incident posted on Facebook was in Bengali and its translation reads,
“Today nearly at about 12 pm, me and my friend were traveling to our home from Hedua on bus no 30B/1. Suddenly we saw this man making obscene gestures towards us inside the bus but no one protested against it. At the end I complained to the conductor about the same for which his reply was “what can I do? How will I know what is going on inside someone.”
I shouted inside the bus “someone please grab him, he is literally making obscene gestures towards me”, but no one bothered to care or protest.
The same incident happened to us 15 days back but due to fear I couldn’t take any action against it. But now I need justice. Last time he was masturbating after taking his private parts in his hands, but I didn’t have any proof on that day so I couldn’t take any action. The bus number is 30B/1 WB25C6638″
It seems true that our society is no longer safe for women. Every now and then, we hear many cases wherein girls are targeted for no reason. Sexual harassment against girls and women has become a common affair in India today.
