A man in Uttar Pradesh’s Pilibhit district assaulted a woman in broad daylight after she allegedly spurned his advances, news agency ANI reported. Local police has registered a case against the man. A video clip from CCTV footage shows the man assaulting the girl repeatedly in the presence of another girl, who seems to be a friend of the victim.

Crime against women in UP has been an important part of the political debate as well as a bone of contention in the electoral campaigns of various parties in the 2017 UP general elections. The previous Samajwadi Party government was constantly under fire from opposition parties for not being able to provide adequate security to women in the state.

Keeping women’s safety in mind, one of the first steps of the newly-elected BJP government headed by Yogi Adityanath was to set up ‘Anti-Romeo Squads’ across the state to check instances of eve-teasing. These squads consist of teams of police officials who patrol streets to check and prevent such cases. These police teams would be spread out near malls, market areas, schools, colleges, coaching centres and other sensitive spots to ensure women’s safety. However, the squads came under severe criticism from the opposition after various reports emerged of local police harassing young couples in the name of security.

        Any man who physically hurts a woman should be caught and punished severely.

          It's for sure that the pervert is a muslim. That's why media doesn't reveal his name. In Pilhibit,muslims do such disgusting things. Their number is abnormally high in Pilhibit. Their targets are Hindu girls and women.

            No, from your comment it is highly likely that it is someone like you. It is immaterial if this was a Muslim or a Hindu.

                Pathetic. I am surprised at the third woman - she parks her scooty coolly, takes out her bag and walks past before, as a second thought takes the girl away as if nothing has happened. It was 3 against one - they could have easily thrashed that low life before handing him over to police. These happenings will not stop unless girls learn to protect themselves.

                    The best punishment for these kind of people is they should be buried into a sceptic tank.
