A Man Arrested for just Talking to a Girl: Read the Curious Case of Jasleen Kaur
Nowadays there has been a lot of cases against eve teasing and sexual harassment. Recently a case was registered in the capital of India, Delhi against eve teasing. A man was arrested for just talking to a girl and he was accused of eve teasing. This incident took place on Sunday 23-August-2015 around 8:00 PM.
If we go by the various news sources Jasleen Kaur was waiting at the red light of Tilak Nagar street where she tried to stop some bikers who were trying to jump the red light. A 26 year old man Sarvjeet was also riding his bike at that time and was stopped by her. Sarvjeet had to take a left turn which is free to take so he stopped to ask her that why should he stop when he has to take a left turn? She took this in the wrong way and clicked a picture of him and his bike and told him that she would register a complaint against him.
What happened according to Jasleen Kaur?
According to her when Sarvjeet stopped at the red light, he passed lewd comments about her and when she said that she would go to the police to lodge a complaint against him, he threatened her. The next day Saravjit Singh was arrested by the Tilak Nagar police and was booked under Sections 354A (punishment for sexual harassment) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of IPC.

People are also saying that the girl is associated with the political party- Aam Aadmi Party and its being said that she did it for publicity. Better to wait for the Honorable court to decide on this.
