Kolkata : An inebriated man on Tuesday night allegedly molested a Mumbai-based TV anchor near the Howrah railway station. On a visit to the city, she was on her way to a hotel with her father when the inebriated man tried to drag her and her woman friend out of the car.
Even as the 32-year-old anchor tried to confront the attacker, a motley group, which had gathered around, cheered the assailant.
Encouraged by the lusty cheers, the attacker slapped the anchor’s friend but the anchor hit him back with her shoe. When the women tried to drive away, the crowd blocked their car and started banging on the windows. It was an agonizing 20 minutes before two policemen intervened. The molester was arrested and charged, but he walked out free on bail.
The incident comes after a 25-year-old techie sustained serious injuries after she jumped off a moving train near Belur railway station in Howrah district to save herself from a molester.
