An alert Delhi Police woman official foiled the abduction of a blind girl here, police said Thursday.

Assistant Sub-Inspector Kiran Sethi Wednesday afternoon saw a man forcing the blind girl to sit inside an auto rickshaw in Rajinder Nagar of central Delhi and intervened.

"I was not in the uniform when I spotted the girl.... She was looking scared and told me that the man was forcing her to sit in an auto," Sethi told IANS.

"When I inquired, the man shouted at me and also abused me, saying it was their personal matter... I immediately restrained him with the help of passersby and called police," she said.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Alok Kumar said the man, identified as Sandeep, 29, has been booked under charges of abduction and molestation.

Appreciating Sethi's alertness, Kumar said that she would be rewarded soon.

Sandeep told police during interrogation that he got attracted to the girl and forced her to accompany him for half an hour.

Police said that the victim lives in a hostel for the blind and takes a bus for her college daily from the same spot where the incident took place.

Sethi, an expert in judo, karate and other martial arts, had joined Delhi Police as a constable in 1987.
