Viral post about safety issues in Delhi Metro stations is a warning for all women out there

A woman shared her experience in a series of 15 tweets as she was really 'angry' because she thinks 'women deserve better' and we cannot agree more.

Women and Delhi’s public/private transport aren’t exactly the dream team. In 2012, it was a chartered bus and now, it is Delhi’s lifeline, the Delhi Metro. Considered to be one of the best modes of public transport in Delhi, where one can feel safe at any hour, Delhi Metro is allegedly still not safe for women. Safety in a city like Delhi is still a distant dream.

On Sunday, a BITS Pilani student took the Delhi metro and was heading home. It would have been a normal metro ride but it was not to be because of a man who started stalking her. An account of what transpired after that was not a normal metro ride but  a harrowing experience that shook her to the core. She immediately shared her experience on Twitter in a series of 15 tweets as she was really ‘angry’ because she thinks ‘women deserve better’ and we cannot agree more:

One of the Twitter users has tagged AAP government and Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal and even the Delhi Police in one of his tweets trying to draw his attention towards the issue but obviously, they must be pondering as to under whose jurisdiction does the case fall. Considering the incident took place in Noida, which is a part of Uttar Pradesh, their concerns are genuine only –as genuine as the concern of that security guard at the Golf Course Metro station, who walked upto Megha, after the entire incident.
