Mumbai: In another shocking incident of the bad state of women safety in the country, a 26-year-old girl from Manipur was assaulted, molested, kicked and dragged by her hair in Santa Cruz in the heart of Mumbai.
What is even more disgusting is that the women received no assistance from onlookers or the police. Mumbai police allegedly refused to file a First Information Report (FIR) of the victim. The officer on duty did not mention the molestation part in the report, even though she showed him her torn cloths.
The Mumbai police who took up some programmes to be friendlier to lady complaints and victims do not seem to be implementing those programmes.
Priyanka Chaturvedi, a Congress worker, said this incident was, “absolutely shocking and unacceptable that something like this is happening in the busy area of Santa Cruz. Residents of Mumbai would easily understand how busy the area is and for them to get away with this is very difficult.”
Meanwhile, there was no response from the Maharashtra government on the incident.
