Kolkata Police on Saturday arrested a man for masturbating while staring at a woman on a public bus, PTI reported. Police was alerted after one of the two women posted two videos on her Facebook page and also on the page of the Kolkata Police. Two video grabs showed an elderly man making vulgar gestures and allegedly masturbating inside a bus. Her Facebook status further revealed that similar event happened to her 15 days ago where the same man discomforted her with such shameful act and the girl was scared to revolt.

"When we protested and asked the bus conductor to take action, he ignored our pleas".

"One more thing. On another day, he had unzipped his trousers and taken out his private part".

In an unlikely event in Kolkata, a mentally unsound man was arrested today by the police for allegedly masturbating in a bus.

According to the Indian Express, the Kolkata Police responded to the appeals as follows:"We don't need any written complaint. I want justice", the victim said in her post, which she shared at 1 pm. "We have registered a case on the basis of the video already".

The Kolkata police had assured them that the culprit would be arrested and punished after they came to know about the incident.

Within hours, her post got over 31,000 reactions, 23,000 comments and was shared 35,000 times.

After arresting Roy, who is a resident of Baidyabati in Hooghly district, Kolkata Police wrote on its Facebook page alongside a photo of the offender, "This is the man". This is probably the first case where a man found flashing in a bus has been arrested after the officers received "several messages and letters" from the public.
