A first-year student of DU’S Daulat Ram College in North Campus has filed a complaint against a 52-yr old bank clerk for allegedly molesting her inside his car on the pretext of dropping her to college.
According to an NDTV report, the accused and the 18-yr old victim knew each other since September 2016, when she had gone to open a bank account in Indian Overseas Bank branch located on the college premises. Staying in Moti Nagar, she used to take a lift from him from Vishwavidyalaya Metro Station to the college. On Wednesday, he forced himself on her inside the vehicle, after which she raised an alarm, and managed to escape to inform the college authorities, who called the police.
An FIR was lodged under the relevant sections at Maurice Nagar police station and the accused, Devinder Kumar, has been arrested. “We got to know about the incident around 11.45 am. The incident took place outside the college, but since the girl belongs to our college, we have taken cognizance of the matter, and handed over the culprit to the police. The police registered an FIR and the accused is in police custody. Now he’ll be produced in court,” said Savita Rai, principal, Daulat Ram College.
