Thiruvananthapuram: A transgender and women’s rights activist was sexually harassed during an overnight bus journey in Kerala’s Malappuram on Thursday.

The incident took place at around 3 am when the bus was passing through the Malappuram district.

She said she woke up from sleep at around 3 am to realise that someone was touching her inappropriately. On realising what was happening, she raised an alarm.

She claimed that the bus staff initially suggested that the accused be deboarded but she insisted on taking him to the police station.

Munaver was in the opposite berth of the sleeper bus in which the victim was travelling. He told police he touched the victim by mistake while he was trying to move the curtains near the aisle.
