New Dehli: A young woman was allegedly molested by a man who also masturbated in front of her and fled after snatching her phone in Lutyens area of India’s national capital.
The woman, 30, who works at a language school in Connaught Place, had gone to the terrace for a break on Nov 30. She was talking on the phone at 10am when a man came and started staring at her. When she tried to walk away, he blocked her way, police said.
He then groped the woman and masturbated in front of her. She managed to free herself and ran towards the door that had been bolted by the accused, they said.
The woman started screaming while trying to unbolt the door. The man escaped to another terrace after snatching her phone.
The woman’s colleagues showed her the CCTV footage in which the face of the accused was not clearly visible, police added. The woman told police that she would be able to recognise the man if she sees him again.
The incident occurred, just hours before the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data reinforced that Delhi is the most unsafe for women city in India.
