In a proud moment, a schoolgirl in UP’s Meerut has shown society that our women are no longer going to stay silent against harassment. This brave schoolgirl was seen beating her alleged harasser with a stick while he tries to beg for forgiveness in a busy marketplace.
In the viral video, the schoolgirl could be seen thrashing her harasser multiple times. In the video, you could hear her repeatedly saying, “How dare you to harass us?”
While sharing the details with TOI, the girl mentioned how the boy kept harassing her and her friend for days, asking for their phone numbers. While sharing the information, Vineet Bhatnagar, SP (city) said:
“We have detained the youth. An FIR will be filed after receiving a complaint from the girl.”
The incident happened in broad daylight in Meerut’s Sadar Market. It is a matter of great shame how two schoolgirls were allegedly being stalked by a youth for quite some time in the busy market. As per the sources, he would often be accompanied by his friend as they would sit on their motorcycle and wait for the girls to harass them.
Earlier, the girls used to walk quietly past their motorcycle, but on Friday, one of the girls got tired of constant harassment. She refused to stay silent. So, she gathered her courage and took a stand for herself and the other girls. When the girl confronted the harasser, they were taken aback.
As the duo tried to flee, a passerby caught them. The girl allegedly slapped the youth who was harassing her as he begged for forgiveness. Soon police reached the spot and she allegedly took a police baton and beat him. The police then took away the two youths.
At IFORHER, we are in awe of this courageous girl who has shown society that women are not weak anymore. They will stand for themselves if society keeps failing them. We hope many young girls will seek inspiration from this real hero and will become their own heroes!
