Three women fought off an engineer and got him arrested for passing comments and molesting one of them.
Police said the women were on their way to the Pragati Maidan Metro station after attending a seminar at ITO, when the man, who was reported to be drunk, made lewd comments about them.
“The man first said something and when we objected, he got hold one of us. As we tried to catch him, he ran away. But we did not give up and chased him. Local people also helped us in nabbing him and he was handed over to the police,” said 20-year-old Nisha (name changed) in her complaint. The incident took place at Tilak Bridge on Saturday evening.
“The man, later identified as Mohit Soni, an engineer, had been caught by the women and local peopl before we reached the spot. He was immediately placed under arrest,” a senior police officer said.
The women later went to the Tilak Marg police station and filed a complaint against the man. The accused lives with his parents in Dwarka. “The women showed immense courage,” the officer added.
Police spoke to witnesses who said that one of the woman held the accused by his neck but he managed to get out of her hold. He was later chased down by the women and local residents.
