Patna: Thirty-four girls student of a residential school in Bihar had to pay a heavy price for opposing routine sexual advances made by some local youth on Saturday evening. The girls were thrashed so badly by the boys that the injured girls were rushed to the hospital immediately in an ambulance. “More than 12 girls sustained grievous injuries and the condition of two of them is critical”. Many of the injured have internal pain, said Congress MP, Ranjit Ranjan from Supaul who visited the hospital on Sunday.
“When the girls came outside the school to play, boys standing in the nearby terraces used explicit words. After the girls revolted to the comments, they were beaten up by the boys. A few of us went to the field to calm the situation. It all became peaceful soon after, but the boys did not stop misbehaving. At that point, there were 10-12 boys.
The mob had a free run, vandalized the Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya(KGBV), which is the residential school for girls belonging to SC, ST, OBC and minority communities. Only two arrested were made till the time of going to press. Both KGBV and middle school are on the same campus with the separate building but a common playground. ”
The Girl at KGBV alleged that some youth of Darpakha often harassed them sexually and passed lewd comments. The girls confronted some of the youths on Saturday and the violence was in retaliation of this act, they added. Narrating the sequence of events, Sapaul DM, Badiya Nath Yadav said some of the girls confronted a few local youths and some middle school students for writing vulgar messages on the wall of KGBV.”Such incident won’t be tolerated, we will identify the culprits and bring the guilty to book”
India should stand with Tewari and his wife kalpana, Yogi Govt should suspend all cops who supported this and if cops stand with black armbands for murder cop, what justice can public get? A week after the murder of Apple employee Vivek Tiwari by a constable, UP police are tackling rebellion in the force’s rank and file, Junior cops are rallying behind the arrested constable, Prashant Chaudhary, citing “freedom of expression” and blaming their senior for not supporting them. Police constable across UP sported black armbands and posted photos on social media in a show of solidarity with suspended constable chaudhary, currently behind bars as the main accused in Tewari’s murder . As the images went viral, Tewari Window kalpana demanded action against the cops. Initially DGP, O P Sing’s office said most of the pictures morphed or lifted from other place, but later ordered a probe. The call from for the protest was given by two cops-Avinash Phatak and Brajendra Yadav-both of whom were arrested on Friday for “anti-police” activities and inciting other policeman.
The arrests followed their dismissal on Thursday night . In Lucknow, SSP, Kalanidhi Naithani removed three SHOs – Ajay Kumar Yadav from Aliganj, Dharmes kumar Shahi from Guddamba and Parshuram Sing Naka – and suspended three constable- Jitendra Verma (Aliganj), Sumit Kumar (Gudamba) and Gourav Chaudhary (Naka)-for breach of peace. He said the cops in the photographs were being identified and action would be taken against them.
DIG (law and order) Praveen kumar Tripathi said no indiscipline will be tolerated in the force. “We are a disciplined unit and the law is taking its course,” said Tripathi. In Bareilly, constable Neeraj Mathur was attached to police lines for uploading a video against Tewari’s widow Kalpana on social media. A constable in Etah district, Sarvesh Chaudhary, was suspended after he posted a video against his senior for not supporting junior cops.
In today’s busy world, none of us have time to look at what is important. We need to stop ourselves for a minute and look around to see what is going wrong. One such instance, which needs immediate attention is the “Hebbal Flyover“. This flyover was inaugurated on December 30th, 2003 and our honorable CM S.M. Krishna said its a new year gift to the city.
Now we can see a minor crack and the flyover has developed problems with its expansion joints on the arm leading towards Hennur from the airport. The 65 crore flyover was the longest in the country at that time running up-to 5.35 km, with two separate carriageways and six lanes. It was south India’s first interchange at five levels which was built in just 24 months. This is something Bangloreans should be proud of, and now its time to secure it and avoid the disaster.
We do not want Kolkata flyover crash to be repeated here again, so immediate action from BDA has to be taken and avoid the nightmare as this flyover will always be wedged solid with traffic gridlock. This is one of the most busy bus station with a lot of school children commuting everyday, and also the main route towards the airport. When we can protest and stop the steel bridge from Chalukya to Hebbal flyover, why are we silent for the safety of children and responsible lives.
Its time to stand up and question the concerned authorities about the quality of flyover and get this problem fixed on priority.
Wake up Bengaluru!!
