The two incidents that took place recently in Bangalore are quite scary. The mass molestation of women on M G Road and Brigade Road on New Year’s eve and the other one where a girl was walking alone on a lonely stretch of road. In the first incident, there were about 1500 policemen in the vicinity and instead of controlling the molesters, they were mute spectators. So where is the safety for women when such incidents take place in front of policemen and they do nothing? There have been reports of one more incident of molestation in New Delhi on New Year’s eve. Girls and women need to have a feeling of safety and security wherever they are. It is the duty of every citizen of India to see to that.
