Molested by an unidentified biker on a street in Goregaon, a woman took to Twitter on Wednesday to narrate the incident and apprise the police.

As per the tweet, posted by the woman on Mumbai police’s Twitter account, she was walking on a busy Goregaon street, when a man on a motorbike slowed down, pinched her above the waist and fled the spot. The woman tried to hit the biker with her bag, but could not stop him. However, she was able to notice the vehicle’s registration number, but only partially. “A perv on bike slowed his bike and pinched me on my upper body. As I tried to hit him with my bag, saw his bike number only 2572,” read the victim’s tweet.

The police took cognisance of the victim’s complaint on Twitter and alerted the concerned police station. API Ashwini Koli, who handles Mumbai police’s Twitter account, said, “As soon as we read her complaint on Twitter, we replied to it and asked her to share the exact address or details on the culprit. However, the only reply we received from her was that the incident happened in Pragati Nagar at M G Road, Goregaon West. We need to talk to her and get more details for the case’s investigation. We have sent her a message and awaiting reply. Also, given that only the partial number of the vehicle (2575) is known, it would take some time to nab the biker.”

Mumbai Police PRO, Ashok Dudhe, said, “We have sent the vehicle number provided by the victim to the traffic police. Once we get the vehicle details, it will help us zero-in on the accused and file an FIR.”

DCP Traffic, Sanjay Jadhav, said, “We tried getting information on bikes with registration numbers ‘2572’, but could not get any. However, we will keep looking for bikes with the same number or series.”
