Jasleen Kaur had accused Sarvjeet of harassment at Tilak Nagar traffic signal in Delhi. However, Sarvjeet claimed that the incident was just a spat between the two.
New Delhi| The Delhi court has acquitted Sarvjeet Singh Bedi- a young man who became a ‘villain’ and ‘pervert’ and who was made into the face of Delhi’s harassment culture. It happened after a video went viral on social media in 2015. He was accused by the girl of making a rude comment at the traffic signal of Tilak Nagar. The girl made the allegation in a post posted on Facebook. He also posted a video related to the incident. The post sparked a big controversy. On social media, everyone started writing posts against Sarvjeet. He was called ‘Delhi’s pervert’.
Within a few days, the Delhi Police also registered a case against Sarvjeet. He lost his job and nobody was ready to recruit him because of his “criminal record”.
This news probably wouldn’t have reached many people if Sarvjeet hadn’t put this on his Facebook profile. He expressed his happiness through Twitter. He said the court on October 11 acquitted him of all charges. The court found girl’s testimony “untrustworthy” and thus ruled in his favour.
CM Kejriwal had praised Jasleen Kaur
When this case came up, CM Kejriwal tweeted and congratulated Jasleen Kaur for her bravery and said that all the girls of Delhi should learn from this and against such injustice being done against themselves.
What was the matter?
Sarvjeet Singh and Jasleen Kaur (complainant) met at Tilak Nagar traffic signal on August 23, 2015. Kaur wrote a post on her Facebook with Singh’s picture. The Post read, “This man made nasty comments on me near Agarwal Sweets of Tilak Nagar at around 8 pm.” The case continued in court for four years. The surprising thing is that Jasleen did not even attend a single hearing. Her family kept saying she had moved to Canada after the ‘harassment incident’. After four years of this case, the decision has now come. And the decision has come in favour of Sarvjeet.
