The video(above) of two sisters thrashing three men who were allegedly harassing them in a bus went viral, leading the police to take prompt action against the accused.

Late Sunday night, the three men — identified as Kuldeep, Mohit and Deepak — were arrested.

The girls were returning from their Rohtak college to Sonepat in the Haryana Roadways bus on Friday when the men allegedly started harassing them. The girls objected at first, but the men reportedly kept passing lewd remarks. Then the sisters retaliated by beating them with their hands and belt, and attempted to push them out of the bus. They also tried calling the women’s helpline 1091, but in vain.

One of the passengers captured the incident on a mobile phone. The video later went viral on TV and social networking websites.

Inspector Gajender Singh, Station House Officer at the Rohtak Sadar police station, said, “A complaint was received on Friday evening and a case was registered against the three men. They are residents of Assan village.”According to the sisters, the men had harassed them earlier too.

“Mohit and Kuldeep were recently recruited into the Army and will proceed for training soon. The family of the accused were pressuring us to withdraw the case and reach a settlement,” the father of the girls said.

The BJP had prominently mentioned the issue of women’s security in its manifesto before the Vidhan Sabha elections polls in the state.

Haryana Chief Minister M Manohar Lal Khattar, after taking oath, had mentioned that the state government was contemplating deploying women police guards in buses to ensure safety of young girls. However, the proposal is yet to be implemented.
