An Indian-origin woman posted a video on her Facebook profile that shows a man hurling racial slurs at her and another Asian woman in a train in New York, USA.
Ekta Desai, an Indian living in New York, was travelling back home from work when a co-passenger started abusing her in the train with at least 100 passengers.
“Next thing I know he is yelling on my face (Did not bother to listen/ react). Knowing its pointless I step away, next target alongside an asian [sic] lady!”, the post read.
The man shouted and asked her to go back to her country. “From Christopher St- till Newport the things this man said, from ‘Asian piece of shit to I will f**k you all right here to get your f**k**g a** back to your country etc.” (putting it in the best words here) he went on relentlessly!![sic]”, Ekta wrote.
The man, however, defended himself saying that he did not touch her and he was only exercising his freedom of speech.
Ekta posted the video which shows the man asking her to go back to her country and yelling at her for no reason. She contacted the metro authorities and police but the police were not able to find or take any action against him.
