Bhubaneswar: In an act of bravery, a girl caught hold of two eve-teasers, slapped them and made them do sit-ups in full public view near Bomikhal area of Bhubaneswar. The matter came to the fore after a video of the incident went viral on social media.
The girl identified as Bebina Mohanty alleged that the two youths on a bike passed lewd comments at her while she was going to market at around 3 PM yesterday, and when situation went out of control she decided to teach them a strong lesson.
Speaking to media, Bebina said, “Two youths followed me for about 10 minutes and started flirting with me despite my protests. I decided to teach them a lesson. I drove my scooty to a public place and started thrashing them after waylaying their bike."
“However the passersby just kept mum and were enjoying the whole episode. I expected somebody to help me and interfere, but nobody came to my rescue. I thought if I don’t teach them a lesson now, such a thing might recur and some other girl will become a victim in the future. So I slapped them and forced them to do sit-ups. I let them go only when they sought pardon,” she added.
Venting her anger at the locals, Bebina said, “People should not become onlookers in such situation rather they should help the girls. I would also like to request every girl to strongly protest such incidents and teach a lesson to the Road Romeos."
