A shocking incident of sexual harassment has come to light from the Pimpri-Chinchwad area of Pune. Police have arrested a Muslim passenger in connection with the disgusting act of masturbating in front of a woman co-passenger traveling in an auto-rickshaw.

The incident took place on Saturday morning, according to the Times Now report when the victim was taking her young child in a rickshaw to YCM (Yashwantao Chavan Memorial) Hospital for treatment. The name of the arrested 30-year-old accused is Soheb Iqbal Qureshi.

At that time, the woman noticed that the person sitting in the rickshaw was looking at her and doing obscene acts. As soon as the rickshaw reached the YCM hospital, the woman got out of the rickshaw and went to the police station on the hospital premises to report the incident.

She narrated her disturbing ordeal to the cops. Police immediately arrested the accused Soheb Iqbal Qureshi. A police officer has been quoted by Times of India as saying “After getting down from the autorickshaw, the woman immediately alerted the policemen at the police chowki on the premises of the hospital. The suspect Soheb Qureshi was taken into custody with the help of locals.”

Only a few days earlier a man named Arshad had been arrested in UP’s Ghaziabad near Delhi for masturbating in front of a woman at a hospital. As per reports, the woman was standing in a queue at the MMG district hospital for buying medicines. Arshad was standing behind her in the queue and started masturbating. He was sighted by some people who saw that he was engaged in the deplorable act and nabbed him. They then handed him over to the police. The police charged the accused with molestation under IPC Section 354 on the basis of the woman’s complaint.
