GUWAHATI: In a shocking incident, a youth in Dibrugarh had tried to molest an Assam Medical College (AMC) female student in a moving tempo on Monday.
The victim uploading a video on social media alleged that the incident happened while she traveled in a tempo. " I traveled in a tempo from Paltan Bazaar. My destination was the AMCH. An old person, a youth, and I sat in the same seat. I sat in the middle. After some time, the old person deboarded the tempo as he reached his destination. Then, I slightly changed my position and sat close to the window.
Shockingly, the youth came close to me," she said adding that the alleged molester touched one of her legs. " He touched my leg and then he kept one of his hands on my back. I did not tell anything to him anything. I decided that I will give him a lesson near the AMCH gate. And when we reached the gate I slapped him twice. Then, he jumped from the tempo and tried to flee," she added.
The victim also said that she tried to chase him so that he could be nabbed. Then, she noticed a police officer sitting in a motorbike and requested the latter to nab the molester. But the police officer ignored her request, she alleged.
" When I requested the police officer to chase and nab him, he simply ignored my request and said to me " Why do I have to nab him? I don't know you."
"Hearing his reply to me, I was shocked. I could not believe that a uniform-clad police official can give such a reply in a distressing situation," she added.
