Due to the road's dilapidated condition, vehicles move at a snail's pace. The photo taken on Wednesday underneath the Hanif flyover in the capital's Jatrabari area where public sufferings have become a norm due to indifference of the authorities concerned. Photo: Amran Hossain


A scarcity of public transport in the capital forces women to face hassles when they board crowded vehicles every day. A number of perverted males are on the prowl on city streets to take advantage of the situation. The man in blue shirt in the photo has targeted two female passengers of a bus. Although he is not being pushed by others from the back, he intentionally gets close to the two women. The newspaper withholds several other photos of his lewd acts and blurs the victims' faces to protect their privacy. The photo was taken in the capital's Farmgate area yesterday. Photo: Anisur Rahman
