Mumbai: A 25-year-old woman was sexually harassed by a man while she was waiting to board a train at Nahur railway station. The woman raised an alarm and managed to get the molester nabbed before handing him over to the Kurla Government Railway Police (GRP). Bhanudas Kedar, the 50-year-old accused, works in a tea manufacturing company as a deliveryman. The incident occurred on March 12. The victim was waiting at the end of platforms 1-2 of Nahur railway station around 9.15am.
“The platform was not too crowded when Kedar came and stood near the victim and after sometime, he started to flash her. The victim was stunned and confided in a fellow traveller. When Kedar started to escape, the woman raised an alarm. Soon, passersby gathered and caught hold of Kedar,” said a police official. Kedar was handed over to the Kurla GRP where a case was registered under Section 509 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). He was produced before a railway court on saturday.
