A man on a bike allegedly flashed three women in Powai on Thursday afternoon, passed lewd comments and fled.

According to the Powai police, the man apparently flashed the women and then asked them how they felt.

The woman alerted the policemen in the area, but were refused help. However, after they spoke about the incident on social media, a team comprising a senior policeman was sent to their home to record their statements.
