A 25-year-old journalist was molested at ITO Metro station in Delhi on 13 November, early this week. Since the act was caught on CCTV, police were able to arrest the culprit.
The molester took advantage of the absence of security.
The journalist recalled her ordeal on Friday. She said, "At first I thought he touched me by mistake but then he groped me again, after that it took me few seconds to gather myself."
"There was no security personnel around, otherwise I would've caught him there," she said.
The accused, identified as Akhilesh Kumar, was in an inebriated state, allegedly molested the two women and passed lewd comments, police said.
Confirming the arrest, Pankaj Singh, DCP Metro, said they had the person's face captured on a CCTV camera and five teams were formed to identify and track him down.
