Mumbai: A 22-year-old student took to Facebook to recount the horror she faced on a local train in Mumbai where a man masturbated in front of her and threatened to rape her, following which the railway police allegedly refused to file a complaint.

Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu has ordered an inquiry and assured “strict action” a day after the woman’s viral post triggered outrage on social media.



In the post, the woman said she was travelling in the women’s compartment with a friend to Mulund when she noticed a man waving at a co-passengers from the adjacent compartment separated by a safety railing.

The woman said that when she made eye-contact with the man, he yelled abuses at her. She initially thought the man was mentally-challenged and thought he would stop abusing her. But the man instead unzipped his pants and started masturbating while grinning, she said.

The woman said he continued to shout abuses at her and even threatened to rape her.

The woman said that the railway police refused to file a complaint and laughed off her ordeal, forcing her to take to the social media.

On Monday, the Western Railway tweeted that two women staff members will be deployed with the security helpline where women can register their complaints.
