“My friend and I were walking back to my apartment near Old Double Storey, when a balloon hit my head. It seemed like it was filled with semen because it felt sticky. We ran up to check who was throwing balloons and the owners were the only ones staying there. I have given my statement to police,” the victim was quoted as saying by Indian Express.

“One of our friends was hit by three balloons at around 8 pm. She called us for help. We told the police about the house from which the balloons were thrown and demanded immediate action,” one of the students told PTI.
The latest victim of the “semen-flinging” said, “I would have said humans behave like animals but then that’s a disgrace to animals in itself.”
A few days ago, a psychology student of Lady Shri Ram College took to social media to narrate how she was attacked by a semen-filled balloon. “It burst open, its content seeping into my dress. It dried white on my black leggings, and the foreign smell clearly indicated that it wasn’t water,” she said.
