More women are coming out of their homes and in odd hours finally taking the reigns of their own life. But the streets have not become safer. Instead, even toddlers are being sexually abused. People who seem so trustable turns out to be predators.

Man flashes private part, girl gets him arrested

It was a traumatising experience for a 23-year-old woman who went inside an ATM to withdraw cash in Mumbai. A 35-year-old man flashed his private part at the girl when she was withdrawing the money from a bank ATM at Navghar locality in Maharashtra's Mulund.

The accused has been identified as Sandeed Kumbharkar, who works for  private club. The accused has now been arrested by Mumbai Police. He has been charged under Sections 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code which deals with outraging the modesty of the women, reports Mirror Now.

The woman took it to Instagram to post the incident and explained the ordeal. It was her birthday, she wrote on Twitter. Although initially shocked, the woman video covered the "flashing incident" and the man, suddenly afraid of his consequence, ran away. She soon went out to complain to the cops and they swiftly started chasing him.

Next day, the woman visited with her father to the police station and they have arrested the man by then. The girl has been lauded for her courage on social media after the incident.


This is what happened: Last night, I was coming home from bandra after a gig and I stopped the rickshaw at an ATM near my house. I enter the ATM and I'm frustrated when the machine won't dispense money. This is the first time when the man (Sandeep Khumbharkar) enters the ATM and asks if I need help or want him to pay for the ride. I politely decline saying that I'll manage. Once I exit the ATM, I get into an argument with the rickshaw guy with regards to how I'll be paying him the fare. This is when a cop car pulls up and I explain my situation to them. 5-10 mins after talking to the cops, I say that I'll give the ATM another try. I'm once again at the ATM trying to withdraw money. And the man enters the ATM once again. But this time, he moves in closer and touches my shoulder and thigh, again asking if I need help. I instantly back off and yell at him to stay away from me and that I don't need his help. I go back to trying to withdraw money again, and he's still there. When I hear him, he's calling out to me and blatantly asking me to look at his hard dick that he had pulled out of his denim's zipper area. I quietly start my video recorder and turn the camera right at him. That's when he freaks out and runs out of the ATM. I run to the cop car and show them the video. They instantly start following the guy who has fled on his scooter. So today morning, I go the police station and they have already informed me that they have the guy in custody. He's crying and pleading. But I knew I had to take action against him. So along with my dad, I filed an FIR against him. He claimed to be drunk at the time, which does not exuse his actions at all. What he did, was scary and terrifying. This was a locality wherein I felt safe. But he has ruined it for me. I can't walk the streets feeling the same sense of safety. AND THIS IS MY HOME! I will be giving my official statement to the judge in the coming week and I plan on taking this man to court and make him pay for the way he made feel. What's baffling is that he felt it was okay to flash his dick in a place full of cameras. (Continued in comments)
