Molestation victim recounts her harrowing story
One of the victims of his sexual harassment has now come forward to narrate her ordeal. She recounted that the incident took place near DDA sports complex in Dwarka. In a video shared by journalist Saurabh Trivedi, the victim stated, “…I was cycling when I noticed a small grey car with a missing window. The car was easily noticeable and left me wondering how would the owner drive a vehicle with broken windows. There was a small gap between the footpath and the car and I cycled through the narrow lane.”
She continued, “After some time, I noticed that the car was following me. When I didn’t take notice, the man in the car began pressing the horn (to draw my attention). I asked him to leave because there was no one around. But, he continued chasing me. Then, I thought of replying to him. When I looked at him, he asked me the directions for Dwarka Sector-14. Before I could reply, I noticed that he had pulled down his pants and began masturbating. I yelled at him and asked him to get lost.”

“I was scared because there was no one around. There were only cars, passing by me at high speed. In the meantime, the man started saying nasty things to me. I was in a state of fix. Should I wait or yell at him? Should I call someone for help? Should I take out of my camera and start recording? What if the man gets out of the car? What if I cry for help and no one comes to my rescue? All these questions were crossing my mind.” the victim recounted.
A total of four First Information Reports (FIRs) were registered against the accused Puneet Grewal under the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Prevention of Children from Sexual Offences (POSCO) Act. Meanwhile, the Delhi police have initiated disciplinary action against him.
