In recent news, a group of women in Maharashtra’s Dombivli taught a very good lesson to the man by thrashing him badly and took him on the streets as severe punishment for ‘harassing’ and ‘molesting’ one of the women.
The video of the incident has gone rife on the internet. It shows the man being thrashed with slippers. As per the reports in Mirror Now, the man owns a small shop in Balaji Nagar, Dombivili East in Mumbai. He had a habit of passing some vulgar comments at one of the women daily when she used to pass by his shop.
The man even tried to touch her inappropriately and also threatened to harm her son. The woman got angry and then approached a women’s rights group as they reached the spot on time and confronted the man.
“He used to follow the woman, who is employed with a small company and supplements her income by working as a house-help. He would often make obscene gestures at the woman,” said one of the activists who was part of the women’s rights group.
“After facing the harassment for long, she narrated the incident to one of us. On Monday evening, we reached the spot to confront and question him about it. As he gave us vague and arrogant answers, we caught him by his collar and slapped him,” said another woman activist.
“Though Bansode apologised to the victim and her son who were present at the spot, we feared that he might target them again. So, we dragged him to his house in Balaji Nagar and asked him to apologies to the victim in front of his wife,” said the activists.
When the man was aggressive, the women’s rights group decided to settle it once and for all. They beat up him badly with fists and slippers and made him parade all the way to his home while recording the whole incident.
Once they reached the accused’s own home, the women made him explain the entire matter in front of his wife. He then expressed regret to the woman in front of his wife.
