In a viral video, a group of female students from Dharm Singh Saraswati Balika Inter College in Uttar Pradesh’s Baghpat can be seen beating up a man with sticks for harassing them.
One of the girls, while speaking to ANI, said they thrashed the perpetrator “to teach him a lesson so that he doesn’t dare to harass any other women.”
According to The Times of India, the girls took the step after their complaints to the school authorities went unheard.
SHO Sanjeev Kumar told ANI that the accused, identified as Kapil Chauhan, has been arrested under Section 294.
