Taslima Nasreen calls Delhi bus masturbation incident 'victimless crime', gets slammed on social media

A day after a Delhi University student lodged a case against a man for allegedly molesting her onboard a bus, author Taslima Nasreen called the public masturbation incident a "victimless crime".

She tweeted:

The student, who had recorded the incident on camera, accused the man sitting next to her of masturbating and of repeatedly trying to touch her waist. The incident occurred on 7 February in a DTC bus on the route between Vasant Vihar and IIT Gate, according to News18.

The student claimed that she raised an alarm and told her co-passengers that the man was masturbating but, no one understood what she was saying, reported The Indian Express. She further said that the ordeal went on for about 10 minutes but the 30-odd other passengers on the bus allegedly ignored the incident, Hindustan Times reported. Nasreen's tweet garnered reactions on social media.
