At a time when the entire nation has come together to pay tribute to the brave heart of the Delhi gang-rape case, a stray incident of eve teasing has been reported from Allahabad. What is ironical is that the eve teaser is none other than a policeman.
THE POLICEMAN was passing lewd comments on some women who were staging a peaceful march. The students were from Allahabad University, and was teased by a policeman, who was on duty to manage the crowd. He not only abused the women protesters but also raised questions on their integrity and the number of boyfriends they have. Now, the angry girls are demanding his suspension.
Shalu Yadav, Allahabad University Union Vice-President said, “There was a policeman by the name of Rahul Trivedi, who directly said that the girls participating in the protests have 10 boyfriends and we cannot give protection to each and every girl.” She also added that Amarnath Yadav, senior to the accused, has apologized for this man, but she still wants strict action against Trivedi, and his suspension, reported NNIS.
Shalu also said that inspite of their complaint against the policeman, no action had been taken so far. She also asked - if policemen were not accountable for safety then who is?!
