A 20-year-old student of Delhi University filed an FIR against a man who was allegedly masturbating while sitting beside her in a DTC bus. She posted a video of the incident on social media, and registered an FIR at the Vasant Vihar police station. She said that in spite of raising an alarm, nobody came forward to help her. Her account, if proven true, is just one more addition to the many such disgusting episodes that happened in the recent past, with many of them going viral on social media.

Is masturbating in public a crime? Well it is a victim-less crime,” she further says. The posts have not gone down well on social media thereafter, with many calling out the author’s comments and countering her stand.

Here are some of the reactions her first tweet garnered.

      Taslima is a mental case. She said earlier that women urinating standing in public is not a crime. This case depicts the lawlessness in society and he should be flogged on hands in public for this shamelessness.

        I read a contribution by a woman passenger in a news paper several years ago. The woman was travelling on a crowded train. The situation was similar. A man stood behind that woman and his body rubbed against her back continuously for sometime. He did not but lost his ability to hold on to his . When he left the train the woman realized that he had left behind an unpleasant fluid on her dress. She reportedly felt very uncomfortable. She could not do anything except reporting it Similarly, while travelling on an Orange Line from Washington DC to Pentagon City, I noticed a tall man holding against the shoulder of a woman. I was short. It appeared that she was his friend. Many in the crowed noticed he was undergoing which resulted in him having serious erection. The lady who was shouldering him did not hesitate, but enjoyed it. I noticed several passengers also noticed the erection in him. So my point is that it is happening every where all over the world.
