Romeos of Kanpur would have a hard time ahead for sure as the young ladies of the city have now formed a belligerent group- Kali, to fight against eve-teasing.
The brain behind the gang is convenor of Mahila Manch, Neelam Chaturvedi. This has been formed on the lines of gulabi gang formed sometime ago in Jhansi and Banda.
The leader of Kali group Subhasini says: "We believe in giving instant punishment to eve teasers who loiter in market places, shopping malls, girls colleges or girls’ hostels. The punishment includes sit-ups while holding ears, caning on hands and buttocks among others.
The group started its operation by visiting various girls’ colleges (SN Sen Degree College, Juhari Devi Girls Inter College) and shopping centers and taught many eve teasers a good lesson.
Three poor majnus of Gyan Bharti Inter college would remember Kali group all their life as they received a good beating from five members of the group when they tried to molest girls. The boys were given the option either to take public punishment or face police action.
The dress code of the group in Black that includes, black sarees, black blouses, black salwar suits, black jeans and even burqas. Burqas are specially utilized by this group to facilitate the tracking of eve-teasers.
Some members carry canes while other make use of their karate and judo training.
