(1/6)This man(right, grey jacket+backpack) flashed his penis at me inside #Delhi Metro around 6PM while I was returning from work today. Feel shaken, numb & angry. Didn’t even remember I had taken this pic till I spoke to a friend hours later. @OfficialDMRC @DelhiPolice @DCWDelhi pic.twitter.com/3GQACconKw
