Police on Monday said it has registered a case against an unknown person who allegedly molested a Delhi University student and masturbated in front of her inside a moving bus in Delhi.

The girl has alleged that the man touched her inappropriately and then masturbated.

"I made a video of the incident and posted it on social media to make people aware of the incident".

Though the police have registered the FIR under sections 354 (sexual harassment), 354-A (making sexually coloured remarks), and 294 (obscene act in public place) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), no arrest has been made yet. The victim said the incident occurred on 7 February on the route between Vasant Vihar and IIT Gate, according to the report.

In the video uploaded by the victim on social media shows the man masturbating in the bus, while other passengers didn't come to her rescue when she asked for help. "When I called out to a fellow woman, she plainly said, "Acha". She has also alleged that she raised her voice but the people present in the bus chose to ignore the incident.

After the incident came to light, Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) chief Swati Maliwal took to Twitter to say she had spoken to the SHO in the matter.

What is shocking to learn is that no one in the bus reacted to the incident. She filed the FIR at Vasant Vihar police station.

She claimed that she ignored the man when he was misbehaving with her. The incident has once again reinforced questions surrounding the safety of women in the capital city.

"I was reading a book when the seat started shaking".

So far, the accused has not been identified in the case but the police suspect the perpetrator could be a local and trying to nab him.

Meanwhile, the man, clearly seen in the video clip, is yet to be arrested despite nearly a week after the incident.
