Delhi, July 22: Two girls from the Northeast of India were reportedly sexually harassed by a group of men in Delhi’s Hauz Khas area. The girls recorded a video of the incident, which then went viral on social media.
As per the girls, they were sexually harassed in Hauz Khas when a group of men stopped them to ask them “their rate for sexual activities”. In the video, the girls can be seen confronting the men. After this, the men can be heard apologizing for their actions.
Taking suo moto cognizance of the matter, Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal issued a notice to the Delhi Police relating to this incident. The Delhi Police has been asked to register an FIR in the matter and to start a probe.
Swati Maliwal said on the issue, “I saw this video on social media and was disgusted to see how the group of men was fearlessly harassing the girls. Strong deterrence needs to be created against sexual harassment so that no one dares to commit such a crime. We have issued a notice to the police seeking an FIR and probe in the matter.”
What a coincidence! Today we took action against some men harassing girls from North East & today I also chanced upon this amazing magazine which explores North East India in such detail.
So excited to read them all. It’s my dream to travel some day to all the seven sisters 🥰 pic.twitter.com/LZbXPCoMGF
