New Delhi: A women and her two friends were al­legedly mo­lested by two men in a resto­bar in south Delhi’s Greater Kailash on Satur­day night. The woman nar­rated the in­ci­dent on her so­cial me­dia ac­count. She alleged that the two men made ob­scene re­marks and pushed her chair. Po­lice said they had scanned CCTV footage at the restau­rant and the ac­cused would be nabbed soon.

In her so­cial me­dia post, the woman wrote: “Three of us had gone out. The in­ci­dent hap­pened be­tween 10.25pm and 10.40pm. Two men sat be­hind our ta­ble and one of them rested his arm on my chair. I moved my chair as his arm was very close to my head. The other man sit­ting with him then pushed my chair very ag­gres­sively...”

The woman claimed that when she and her friends con­fronted the men, they started hurl­ing abuses at them. One of them, she said, even kicked at her face and made ob­scene re­marks. “The in­ci­dent shook us im­mensely. The restau­rant man­ager sent the men to the first floor to calm things down. In less than five min­utes, the two men came back and sat at the same ta­ble as be­fore,” she wrote.

“The staff lacked in­sen­si­tiv­ity; had we not been strong enough in our stand ask­ing them to leave, they would have hap­pily served them,” the woman claimed.

When one of her friends tried to take a pic­ture, the ac­cused blew kisses at her, the woman claimed, adding that she called the po­lice when the men left. “We were left shaken, shocked and ap­palled. We spent three hours at the po­lice sta­tion try­ing to get an FIR lodged,” she alleged. Deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (South) Atul Ku­mar Thakur said: “We have reg­is­tered a case un­der sec­tions 354 (mo­lesta­tion) and 506 (crim­i­nal in­tim­i­da­tion) of the In­dian Pe­nal Code. The ac­cused will be nabbed soon.”

On the alleged de­lay in fil­ing of an FIR, the DCP said: “The women reached the po­lice sta­tion and their com­plaint was im­me­di­ately reg­is­tered.”
