According to one of the organisers, the march was held in Gurgaon and not India Gate because they feel charity begins at home.
"Gurgaon is not far behind Delhi when it comes to atrocities against women. Everyone seems to be going to India Gate but we wanted to spread the message here. This is where we live and we want change here," said Anil Jain, a resident of Old Gurgaon.
The group was followed by a Gurgaon police jeep and two constables walked behind the group. When Hindustan Times approached one of the police officers to understand their take on the incident, the constable said, "Whatever has happened is very bad and sad. But some things happen beyond our control."
