i was travelling in bus from Dehradun to Delhi. a guy seated next to me wss looking at me, i thought he is gay, i kept hand on his thighs for almost 5 hours and he did not say anything, when Delhi was just to arrive, he started thrashing me in the bus and broke my specs, when i got down from teh bus he took me to the police station and complained that i was trying to touch his provate parts. The hawaldar told me to sit in a cock posostion for 30 minutes and then left me after taking my contact dteailos in his register and charging me rs 500 fine without giving any receipt
