Strange but a boy tried to commit suicide after he and some of his friends were badly heckled and harassed by hostel girls of Harcourt Butler technological Institute ,Kanpur.

The boy Vikram Singh, a second year Chemical Engineering student and about a dozen of his friends had planned to organise a function to select Mr and Mrs Chemical Engineering. When rumour spread that the function was being organised to ridicule girls of the institute and that posters would be prepared describing their figure vivdly they became angry. Anda meeting of senior hostel girls was held at the hostel in which 120 girls participated.

They summoned theboys who had planned to organise the beauty paegant
and asked them to explain why they were so keen about advertising figures of girls in advance. The boys felt happy at the invitation but when they reached the girl's hostel a different fate awaited them.

They were aghat to find more than a hundred girls advancing menacingly towards them. It is learnt that some girls reportedly hurled filthy and unprintable abuses on the boys.

Later they were heckled and 'girl –handled'. In the pushing and jostling done by scores of girls some of the boys also sustained minor injuries. They were also kicked in their private parts, boxed slapped and their ears were pulled

This forced the boys to apologise before the huge crowd of girls in the girl’s hostel. All of them left red-faced for they had been badly roughed up by the eves. The Adam teasing however, left one of the boys, Vikram so humiliated that when he returned to his hostel he tried to commit suicide by slitting his vein he was later admitted to hospital.

Later students created ruckus and demanded action against the guilty girls who had harassed the boys. Harcourt Butler Technological Institute Director RO Singh has instituted an inquiry into the incident.
