Chikan: Molesting school girls on the train
Another employee of public broadcaster NHK has been arrested for molesting a high school girl on a train. A director of children’s TV programs is accused of indecent assault after he put his hand up the victim’s skirt and fondled her buttocks on a Tokyu Denen-Toshi Line train in Tokyo Friday morning, investigators said. He admitted to the allegations during questioning.
The incident follows the arrests of a chief producer at an affiliate and another NHK director earlier this month for molesting women. In May, an NHK presenter was also arrested for indecent assault.
No wonder many Japanese people (and most foreigners living here) refuse to pay the NHK fee. The lack of management skills is appalling, not only as reflected in content but also in Dilbert-style refusal to adopt a modern approach to leadership.

This is his boss apologizing, not the actual perv himself.
By the way, I think the high school girl deserves a medal for her quick thinking. She grabbed the perv’s hand and held on tight all the way to Shibuya station, where she called station staff for help.
