21 Year Old Woman Harassed By a Taxi Driver on Instagram Live, Performed Obscene Acts

Akanksha

A 21 years old woman named Debaleena Saha never thought of it that her cab ride will turn into a horrifying tale. A law student and blogger Debaleena from Mumbai was having a usual day with her mother and sister until she chose to travel by a cab in Mumbai.

During her ride, the cab driver opened his zip and made obscene acts. Saha boarded the taxi around 9:30 am and was visiting the renowned Siddhi Vinayaka Temple with her mom and her sister when the episode occurred. Her post on Instagram read, “This driver as soon as I got into this local taxi, opens his zip, was staring at me objectifying & was stimulating his genitals (I wish I could record that) every time he took a halt on signals, making me feel so uncomfortable.”

SHAME !!!! It took me hours to think if I should share this or not, but I am sharing it now, . (Before you judge me based on what I was wearing I was wearing normal jeans and top) We were on our way from Siddhivinayak temple, We took this local taxi( worst decision ever) taking my mom & sister to Nariman Point on my way from Dadar, This driver as soon as I got into this local taxi, opens his zip ,was staring at me objectifying& was stimulating his genitals ( I wish I could record that) every time he took halt on signals ,Making me feel so uncomfortable, it was morning 9:30 am, Being in Mumbai I always felt safe and have never come across any such situation before, It’s called safe city, But if people like this can make someone like me who is local resident of this city go through this, I wonder what women coming from other city could have gone through, it’s not the city to be blamed but such people , Yes I got down abruptly in middle and no he wasn’t letting us get down until I forced voice, I said this where I could see Mumbai police around, later he started saying sorry, stating he was poor but excuse me, being poor doesn’t give you right to sexually harass someone, What if it would have been late evening , me alone in this same situation, I always heard about all this untill today I experienced this shit . Update – FIR is filled and I didn’t share this to feel victimised but to make all the women out there feel powerful and raise their voice when &where needed. Also up till he is not arrested I would suggest you guys to not board this taxi MH01 BT7115. #Shame #speakup #raiseyourvoice Update 2 – Person was arrested Objective behind – To create pressure among the officials to take up that action .!
