Woman cop saves visually challenged girl from drunk goon

BRAVO!: ASI Kiran Sethi.  

A Delhi Police woman assistant sub-inspector overpowered and apprehended a 29-year-old man who allegedly molested a visually-challenged girl and tried to abduct her in Central Delhi.

The 19-year-old victim is a student of Hindi Honours at Delhi University’s Janaki Devi Memorial College in Rajender Nagar.

According to the police, the victim de-boarded a public bus in front of her college and started walking towards the college gate when the accused, later identified as Sandeep, caught hold of her and asked her to come along with him. When she resisted, he asked an auto-rickshaw to stop and tried to force her inside.

“When the auto driver saw the girl crying and resisting the man, he asked her if she wanted to enter the auto voluntarily. When she refused, he drove away,” said a police officer.

In the meantime, Kiran Sethi, an assistant sub-inspector at Anand Parbat police station, spotted the girl. She was on her way to the police station on her scooty and dressed in plain clothes.

“The ASI tried to stop Sandeep, but he misbehaved with her and continued harassing the victim. When Kiran revealed that she was a policewoman, he tried to escape,” said the officer.

Trained in martial art, Kiran chased Sandeep, overpowered him and then called the Police Control Room.

When the police took Sandeep into custody, he was found drunk. The officer said he was involved in a similar incident of harassment in the past. He works at a handicrafts shop in Connaught Place. The girl was not acquainted with the accused.

“Sandeep has been charged with kidnapping and assault with intent to outrage the modesty of a woman,” said the officer.
