New Delhi: How safe is Delhi for women? The recent incident has sparked panic after a man molested a journalist and another woman in a span of 15 minutes at the ITO Metro station in central Delhi on November 13.

The accused Akhilesh, a tea vendor, was in an inebriated state and molested the two women and passed lewd comments.

 

He was arrested on Thursday.

What is even more shocking is the fact that when the journalist tried to report the crime to the CISF personnel present at the metro station, she was made to wait for more than an hour at the control room before the complaint was registered.

The journalist said the absence of police and CISF at the spot allowed the person to get away after the crime.

Akhilesh, who was produced before Patiala House Court on Friday was sent to a 14-day judicial custody.
