Haryana: Girls from adjoining villages take a stand against eve-teasers, say none of the girls will go to school unless miscreants are rusticated

In the letter, they warned that if the children of Udaka village were not rusticated from the school, then none of the children from both Atta and Barota village will attend school.

In an exemplary act of bravery, girls belonging to two adjoining villages, Atta and Barota in Haryana, stood up against the incidents of harassment which they had been enduring at the hands of some notorious eve-teasers of a specific-community residing in Udaka village in Haryana.

In what transpired, a girl studying in Government senior secondary school Atta-Barota was molested by a boy belonging to a specific-community from Udaka village on September 7. When the family members of the victim approached the school authorities to complain against the boy, some miscreants belonging to the boy’s village started spreading rumours that people from Barota village (from where the girl belonged) had beaten them badly. After this dozens of people from Udaka village reached the school with sticks and batons and vandalised the school before fleeing.

This was, however, not the only incident which led the girls and villagers from Atta-Barota village to revolt. Girls belonging to Atta and Barota village, studying in Government senior secondary school, were being constantly harassed by eve-teasers from the Udaka village. These boys continuously made passes at the girls, passed lewd remarks, followed them wherever they went and even molested them on their way.

Sick and tired of all this, the girls and their families decided to speak up against the eve-teasers. On September 16 (Monday) families and relatives of these girls and hundreds of students reached the District Secretariat and submitted a letter with their demands to DC.

In the letter, they warned that if the eve-teasers from Udaka village were not rusticated from the school, then none of the children from both Atta and Barota village will attend school.

The Sarpanch of Barota village Dharmendra, Anand Singh, the Sarpanch of Aata village, Surendra Numberdar Barota, Lalsingh Numberdar, Dinesh Yadav, Jawahar, Zilla Singh, Yogesh, Rajesh, Charan Singh, Manohar Lal, Dharambir, Gajendra Singh were amongst many others who approached the District Secretariat to seek justice for the girls.
