Man flashes his genital at women on a bus in Guwahati
Guwahati, November 10: A bus journey for two city women professionals turned into a nightmare after they caught a man allegedly flashing his genital at them on a city bus on Saturday.
The incident took place around 1:20 pm near the Bhangagarh flyover.
One PR professional along with her colleague had boarded the city bus at Christian Basti. The women caught a man “red-handed” flashing his genital on the running bus which was on its way to Fancy Bazar.
The man has been identified as Abdul Ali (35), a resident of Kalaigaon.
The brave women confronted and shamed the man. The women also thrashed the man while he was pleading to forgive him.
“The girls should take the step and act. Girls shouldn’t remain silent. These kind of incidents are not tolerable. Due to such acts of men, rape cases are on the rise in the country,” the professionals said.
An FIR has been lodged at the Paltan Bazar Police Station. A copy of the FIR is available with TIME8.
“It was around 1:20 pm when we noticed this man unzipped his pants and showing his penis to us and rubbing it. He was masturbating by looking at us,” the FIR stated.
Ali was arrested section 354 A (Sexual harassment and punishment for sexual harassment) and 509 (Word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the IPC.
