A woman in Bengaluru has alleged that she was groped near her house by a man on Monday night. In a series of posts on X, the woman recounted her harrowing experience and also shared a video of the man, who is seen hiding his face.

"Last night in #NammaBengaluru a friend of mine dropped me near my house and as I was about to open the gate, this man came and groped me from behind and started running. I called my friend and asked him to stop him before he rode away," the woman said in a post.

She said that when her friend got hold of him, they called the police. The man was then taken to the police station.

However, the woman said the man was released as she did not press charges against him.

"I am unable to file an FIR because of all the trouble that lies ahead of it. The number of court trials and everything involved would mentally harass me is what the people in my neighbourhood suggested who had come on site to help me," she further said,

Questioning the safety of women in public places, the woman said, "It is unfortunate that he is being set free. He wasn’t drunk and he is not a child. He knew what he was doing, and he was waiting for a chance to get me. My deepest condolences to his family because this is the kind of napunsak (impotent) who is 'The Man' of the family."

"To everyone asking why did I leave him? I did not, I have filed a complaint against him and he has accepted what he did in front of cops. The reason behind posting this is spreading awareness and how there are loopholes in the Constitution that would anyway get him out," she said.
