Bhubaneswar: A harasser was on Monday was taught a lesson when the girl he tried to torment on the road slapped him repeatedly in public and made him apologise.
The incident occurred in Jajpur, nearly 130 km from here, when the girl was returning home from the NC College with her two friends.
They were subjected to lewd comments by two bike-borne youths. The girls protested but one of the youths didn’t stop passing comments at the girls following which one of the girls confronted him.
The episode which was shot on the cell phone of a bystander showed the girl dragging the youth from the bike, slapping and kicking him.
The youth then had to apologise. Monday’s incident comes close on the heels of a girl in Cuttack confronting a youth who tried to molest her on January 8. The girl slapped the youth in front of the public for touching her inappropriately.
The incident which was then captured in an onlooker’s cellphone occurred at the busy Badambadi bus stand area of the city. The accused molester was slapped and beaten up with slippers by the girl along with a thorough dressing down.
Though a large gathering was present at the spot, surprisingly no one intervened, while some were busy shooting the incident on their mobilephones....
