Bhubaneswar: After the molestation of a woman by a co-passenger in a bus from Kendrapada to Bhubaneswar a couple of months ago, a similar case has now come up with another women alleging that she was molested by a conductor in a bus from Cuttack to Bhubaneswar.
The shocking incident came up after the girl posted her ordeal on Facebook. However, unlike the previous victim, she did not keep quite to suffer the humiliation. Instead, the courageous girl slapped the conductor much to the delight of the other passengers in her defence.
In her Facebook she posted, that the incident occurred when she was on her way back to Bhubaneswar from Cuttack on June 18. “After waiting for a bus for a long time at Badambadi bus stand, I had boarded a bus that was already boarded by passengers beyond its capacity. There was no space to stand properly inside the bus,” mentioned the girl on her facebook.
She stated further the conductor was touching the other girls indecently on the guise of making space in the crowded bus. ‘’I got irritated when the conductor intentionally tried to touch me in an indecent manner and I slapped him,’’ the girl stated in her post.
However, Commissioner of Police YB Khurania said action would be taken as soon as possible if the victim lodges a complaint. “In such cases, apart from social media, information should also be passed to the local police so that action can be taken. We will check the social media and look what action can be taken,” said Khurania.
