Ms Srivastava wrote on Facebook:
“Another incident of molestation and violation of a woman’s modesty goes unnoticed. My maid was molested by a #flipkart delivery boy on Saturday. 48 hrs since, despite all the calls and requests to the company no response, let alone action against the boy who came to my house to deliver the order. When will we have a safe India for women???? As we look for the answers as a nation, one will make sure this is not repeated and the #flipkart stands up to not only selling products but owning up to the incident. We are not mere customers buying your products but respectable human being who deserve to be treated with respect.”
Speaking about the incident she said, it was a cash on delivery product, so her maid went inside for money then the delivery boy the accused took the advantage of that situation and forsed himself on her maid. It has also been reported that the accused had called the victim and threatened her to keep mum on the incident.
On Monday evening an FIR was filed with the Banjara police station, and the courier boy was remanded to police custody. Murali Krishna, SHO at Banjara Hills, said, “The incident apparently occurred on September 13. They have filed a complaint and we are investigating. We have gotten in touch with Flipkart. They said they would send someone to the station.”
Telugu states recorded a 15.11% rise in crime against women last year with 25,998 cases registered in 2013, and rapes and molestation rising alarmingly. In the last two and half months, more than 100 cases have already been reported across police stations, which activists say are worrying statistics.Proper action should be taken on the culprit.
