Rohtak, April 7: A local girl beat up a traffic policeman for harassing her on their shared autorickshaw ride. The girl was returning from her karate class when the incident reportedly took place. In the auto, the traffic cop kept asking her to be friends with him, requesting her for her phone number. Reports say that the cop has been suspended as the girl registered her complaint and a probe is underway.
In an interview with a news channel, the girl said that she made the constable show her his police ID and his Aadhaar. More details are awaited. The incident comes from Haryana, a state that has been promoting ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’. Lately, many cases of harassment of young girls have come to the fore. In Noida, last month a class IX girl committed suicide. Her family alleged that she was being harassed by two teachers of her school even as the school authorities went on to deny the charges.
A JNU professor was also booked after complaints of sexual harassment from eight of his women students. However, Prof Atul Johri was granted bail soon after.
