A 19 year old student of the University of Delhi was molested by a 22 year old man on Friday, 18 August 2017. The accused has been arrested on the basis of a complaint filed by the woman.

In what comes across as a shocker, a student of the University of Delhi was reportedly molested at a metro station. The incident took place on Friday, 18 August 2017, when the girl had gone to the Pulbangash Metro Station in central Delhi along with her cousin.

The police said that 22 year-old Akshay Gupta was arrested on the basis of a complaint filed by the woman, as reported by India Today. The girl, 19 years old, alleged that the man crept up and started touching her inappropriately, before abusing her. This happened while she was entering the metro station with her cousin. Not only this, but the guy also threatened to kill her if she declined his friendship proposal. “When she refused, he started to issue threats. The woman called the police and he was apprehended from the spot,” replied an officer, as per a report on this issue by The Indian Express. She said that the accused had been stalking her for some time before.

The police have arrested the 22 year old after the complaint. The Deputy Commissioner of Police (Delhi Metro), Pankaj Kumar Singh, said that the case was lodged at the Rithala Metro Station and the man had since been arrested.
