Shivajinagar, 21st March 2024: A distressing incident occurred on Tuesday at the bustling Dnyaneshwar Paduka Chowk on FC Road, where a motorcyclist allegedly harassed a 36-year-old sound recordist in broad daylight.

According to Senior Inspector Chandrashekar Sawant of Shivajinagar police station, Pune City Police, the woman was awaiting a friend’s arrival around 1:25 pm when the biker approached her under the guise of seeking directions to Pune railway station. Seizing the opportunity, he inappropriately touched her and swiftly fled the scene. Despite her efforts to raise an alarm, the perpetrator had already sped away.
