The Hush Post | 7:42 pm | One-minute read |

In yet another incident of sexual harassment, a woman has alleged that a man flashed her on Delhi Metro. The woman took to Twitter to share her ordeal just to draw a cold response from the DMRC.

The woman also tweeted the picture of the man who flashed his penis at her. The timestamp on the photo shows 6:11 PM and the location marked is Sultanpur water treatment plant. She also added that the image was shared on Twitter “hours” after the incident happened.

She tweeted, “This man(right, grey jacket+backpack) flashed his penis at me inside #Delhi Metro around 6PM while I was returning from work today. Feel shaken, numb & angry. Didn’t even remember I had taken this pic till I spoke to a friend hours later”.

Further detailing her ordeal, the woman said, “I was sitting on the 2-seater at the end of 7th coach returning to Gurgaon on yellowline, & this man was standing facing me for quite sometime. I don’t know when he turned to bring his right profile to face me. I just saw his penis outside of his pant directed at me”

The woman said she was “numbed by the incident.” “I can recall the numbness and dread I felt all over my body when I saw it and looked away. He was carrying that bag infront of his penis to hide it from the front. He stayed at that position for maybe a minute while my eyes were glued to the floor”, she said.

However, when the Delhi Metro Railway Corporation responded to her tweet, they said she should have been swifter. “Hi Rashmi, the matter is being looked into. However, in such cases passengers are requested to report the matter immediately to us at 155370 (DMRC helpline) and 155655(CISF Helpline) or contact the nearest Metro official so that immediate action can be taken”, the DMRC replied.
