Frequent bad thoughts

I am not able to understand why this is happening to me? From the past 3-4 months my mind has been turmoiled because of these past incidents of eve teasing and molestation. I can not even overcome very past incidents happened when i was a student of school. I even started suspecting every other male a culprit of these offences. I do not even sit beside any male in any public transport i do not know but i even feel reluctant to come close to any male as i fear that he would touch me in inappropriate way and i would not be able to do anything even i will not be able to recognise the bad touch. Whenever any male touches me accidentally or intentionally my mind keeps on remembering the touch on my body for long time. I even try to overcome many times by doing meditation but still i do not forget and these thoughts keep on coming in my mind anytime, anyday.Most importantly whenever these situation happens and in case if i do not speak to that person immediately i feel very frustrated.
