40 girl students in hospital


A group of girl students were beaten up by a mob after they resisted eve-teasing and sexual harassment in Bihar. Police sources said that about 40 girls who sustained injuries were admitted to a local hospital and are undergoing treatment. So far only one person has been arrested.

The others involved in the case have been identified and will be arrested shortly. Youth from a nearby village used to pass lewd comments and wrote vulgar remarks about the girls on the school walls. When the girls tried to raise their voices against this harassment, the villagers ransacked the school and thrashed the girls. The issue has been snowballed into a political controversy. The Opposition leaders are blaming the State government for failure to maintain law and order in the state.
