New Delhi: A 32-year-old man has been arrested in Southeast Delhi’s Greater Kailash for allegedly masturbating in front of a German national, who is pursuing a Ph.D. from JNU.
The police has arrested Tarun Kumar, a driver hailing from Haryana. According to the police, the incident came to light when the 33-year-old German scholar saw the accused masturbating in a public park on Friday afternoon.
The incident happened around 2.45 pm on Thursday. The woman was walking her dog when she stopped for a while upon noticing a man staring at her in a weird manner. However, when he looked away, she moved ahead. But as soon as she reached closer to where he was standing, the accused pulled down his trousers and started masturbating while looking at her, the police said.
The woman chased after the accused and took pictures of his car as he fled the scene. She provided the same to the police.
“The woman provided us pictures of the registration number of the car and we tracked the owner before swooping in on the accused,” said a police official.
The woman hails from Berlin in Germany and is pursuing her Ph.D. from Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU). Having arrived in India last year, she had taken a rented accommodation in Greater Kailash 2.
According to the police, the driver had dropped off his employer’s wife at a shopping complex before going to the park.
Even as the man drove away, the woman dialled the police control room. A police team immediately arrived at the spot. “The woman provided us the photos she had taken and described the man’s features in detail,” said the police.
The latest incident comes a week after a 22-year-old woman posted a video on social media of a man masturbating in front of her and five other women while on a busy train in Mumbai. The incident had caused further outrage after the woman accused a police officer of refusing to take action against the pervert following her complaint. The accused was eventually arrested.
Last month, a traveller on a Delhi-bound flight was arrested after he allegedly masturbated in front of a female passenger.
