The News Minute | August 10, 2014 | 5.35 pm IST Often, being a woman, transgender, lesbian, or gay, can be an occupational hazard.  So learning about a woman in Bangalore chasing down a man who molested her was like a partial vindication for anybody who has been molested while going about their everyday business. Due to the quick actions of her friend, the police even caught the man who molested her. Veena Ashiya Chindlur posted a video on Facebook saying “Taught an eve-teaser a tough lesson! I was eve-teased this morning by a guy in a park where I run regularly. I chased him, hit him hard and filed an FIR. Police were extremely supportive. I am posting this video for women to know that change will happen only when we want it to happen,” Bangalore Mirror reported.  Chindlur's friend caught her chasing down the man and when she later filed a complaint with the police, the photographs came in handy. Police arrested the man, who was found loitering around the area in just 40 minutes. Watch the video here:
