A woman is seen as role model after she managed to stop a sex offender and single-handedly handed him over to police.
20-year-old Pradnya Mandhare of Mumbai, India, was at a train station on her way home from college when she was sexually assaulted by a drunk man.
A large crowd of people watched as the man touched her inappropriately, but they did nothing.
Mandhare said that she was waiting for a train around 2.30 p.m., when the suspect who was later identified as 25-year-old Chavan Chowdee, walked up to her and began groping her.
The woman then grabbed Chowdee by the hair, and dragged him to a nearby police station. Mandhare said that people stared at her, but nobody intervened.
“I know that women don’t like to complain to the police, but I was determined to make sure he was punished,” Mandhare said.
Chowdee, who is said to be a drug and alcoholic addict, was arrested over the attack.
