Rohtak brave girls

The Brave college-going sisters, who fought back eve-teasers in a Haryana Roadways bus, will be honoured by Haryana chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Republic day.

The girls on Saturday gave a sound beating to three men who attempted to molest them in a bus.

The sisters, who are students in a local government college here used to commute from Rohtak to Kharkhoda daily for attending classes. The accused used to harass them in the moving bus.



The girls on Saturday gave a sound beating to three men who attempted to molest them in a bus.

On Saturday, when the sisters were travelling in a bus the accused again tried to harass them. Infuriated, the girls rained blows and beat them up with belts. A fellow passenger videographed a part of the incident in which two sisters were seen raining punches and kicks on the accused. The victims also tried to get help from women helpline (1091) but to no avail, the complaint said.

Talking to mediapersons, the victims said they were expecting male passengers to come to their rescue after they raised an alarm, but none of them helped them and ironically, some even found fault with the girls over confronting the accused.

Three accused identified as Kuldeep, Mohit and Deepak, who were arrested on late Sunday night, have been sent to judicial custody till December 6.

Earlier, state agriculture minister OP Dhankar had announced prize money of 31,000 each for the girls.
