New Delhi, July 10: A journalist working with a leading media house harassed by two bike-borne miscreants in broad daylight in the national capital on Monday. Narrating her ordeal on microblogging site Twitter, journalist Nikita Jain said two person on a bike followed her car, hurled abuses and smashed her car's rear view mirror.

In a series of tweet, Nitita Jain said soon after leaving her office in film city in sector 16A, Noida, she realised that two persons on a motorbike were following her car. Though she tried to dodge them, but could not succeed.

"I was driving back from work today afternoon from Filmcity Noida. Enroute, I noticed two miscreants following me on a bike behind my car. I tried to dodge them and the ordeal continued for at least 20 minutes," she tweeted. According to her post, the miscreants tried to block her car but she managed to escape. However, she had to stop her car at a signal.

"They tried blocking my way but I somehow managed to keep up with the pace of the car and continued driving amid other vehicles. This was near Akshardham when I took a halt at a red right and rolled down my windows to give them a piece of my mind...

"They stood next to me and passed lewd comments. Hearing those, I thought to myself that ignoring such fools would perhaps be the right thing to do at that time. The signal turned green and they continued following me," she further alleged. The miscreants then smashed her car's rear view mirror, sped and ran away.

"Do women not deserve to drive around in the national capital without fear? I am now based out of Mumbai but I have alwahs felt immense love for Delhi. Incidents like these make me feel I have no reasons to come back to this city anymore," she posted. Responding to her tweets, the Delhi Police asked her to lodge a formal complaint on its website, delhipolice.nic.in.
