KOLKATA: A 27-year-old woman returning home from office on Wednesday evening was molested on a bus between Ruby hospital and Singhabari bus stoppages on EM Bypass. The woman’s cries for help on the bus prompted other passengers to catch the accused — a 49-year-old Survey Park resident. They beat him up and handed him over to the Survey Park police.
The woman, a state government employee, was returning home around 7:10pm. She took an aisle seat on the bus. Soon she felt someone touching her and realized someone had dropped semen on her clothes. She was terrified to see the man ejaculate. The person stood right next to her. Shocked and scared she cried aloud for help. The other bus passengers came to her rescue immediately and caught hold of the person and beat him up. The victim also dialled 100 for help. Lalbazar guided them to the nearest traffic sergeant on-duty.
The bus was stopped on the EM Bypass after noticing the sergeant and the accused Biswajit Sarkar was handed over to police. The Survey Park police registered a case and arrested Sarkar, a local resident. Police, who questioned Sarkar, said the person was married and had a child himself. He was undergoing acute depression and was under treatment. “We have learnt that the accused used to have a shop which is now closed. This has left him, and his family, in acute financial distress. This is a primary reason for his mental depression. He also spoke incoherently when asked what prompted him to act such obscenely in a bus,” an investigator said. Sarkar was produced in a city court on Thursday and was granted bail.
