A biker booked on charges of sexual harassment and criminal intimidation of a young woman in Tilak Nagar was arrested on Monday, police said.
“The accused was aware that police was looking for him and as such was on the run. We nabbed him from the same area (Tilak Nagar),” said joint commissioner of Police Dependra Pathak.
“He has been taken to the police station. More information will be shared with the media after investigation,” he added.
Police said Delhi University student Jasleen Kaur was abused at a traffic signal in Tilak Nagar area in Delhi around 8 p.m. on Sunday.
“We have registered an FIR against the biker under sections 354(a), 506 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code. Investigation has begun and teams have been sent to arrest the accused,” a police official had said.
“A man made obscene comments at me today (Sunday) at around 8 p.m. near Aggarwal, Tilak Nagar. He was on a silver Royal Enfield, vehicle number DL 4S CE 3623. When I told him I am clicking his picture and I’m going to file a complaint against him, he responded by posing for a picture and said, “Jo kar sakti hai kar le. Complaint karke dikha, fir dekhiyo kya karta hun main (Do whatever you like. Complain and see what I do then),” Jasleen said in her Facebook post.

“This man (misnomer) made obscene comments on me today at around 8 pm near Aggarwal, Tilak Nagar. He was on a silver Royal Enfield, vehicle number – DL 4S CE 3623.

Complaint karke dikha, fir dekhiyo kya karta hun main”.
But there was something that is disturbing me much more than his obscene remarks- the fact that it was a red traffic signal and 20 other people heard what he was telling me. Yes, no one minded. No one intervened. No one stood up for me. I decided to stand up for myself and lodged a complaint in Tilak Nagar police station with his photo and vehicle number.
Share his picture and vehicle number as much as you can to pin this creep. (only if you care).
Today he had the audacity to say these things to me, tomorrow he will have the audacity to move one step ahead and do it.
PS- I could’ve written here exactly what he said in his comments, but i don’t want FB to remove my post.
