An incident of sexual harassment was reported during PECFEST at PEC University of Technology when a PU student, who had gone to attend the fest, found a youth, who was standing behind her in the crowd, pleasuring himself.
However, the victim did not file a police complaint. Sources said the victim, a PU student, had gone to watch the musical performance of Bollywood actor Farhan Akhtar.
The victim reported the matter to bouncers, who were present at the fest to check hooliganism. “The bouncers ignored the incident and advised the victim to move further where seating arrangements were made,” said a friend of the victim.
The police were informed and the youth rounded up.
“The police told the victim that she would have to go to the police station and complete other formalities after which she decided not to file a complaint,” said the victim’s friend.
