Elphinstone Stampede: Video captures dying woman getting molested by bystanders

MUMBAI: A disturbing video of dying woman getting molested during Elphinstone Stampede has been doing the rounds on social media.

The Hindu, quotes Elphinstone Road resident Sandesh Bahadur saying, “The molestation video is shameful and without even watching it, one feels like punishing the coward responsible. We rushed to help. Women were crying for help. We couldn’t save many of them due to the crowd on the bridge.”

In the video, a woman victim is seen reaching out with her hand for help when an unidentified person is seen taking  the opportunity and graze his hands over her body.

The tragedy took place on Friday around 10.40 am when the overbridge, linking Elphinstone Road and Parel suburban stations, became overcrowded with people taking shelter from a heavy downpour.
