And eve-teasing used to happen almost daily. Not just that, I have been touched inappropriately in DTC buses. Rubbed at wrong places while in a bus. And if we ventured into crowded areas in Delhi during the time of festivals, people used to touch you at inappropriate places. It was very common and has happened to me. ” She also added that a similar incident happened with her recently in Mumbai as well when she was going to meet a friend in the evening and was crossing the road while talking on phone, two guys on a bike passed some comment and started laughing at her.
