Santosh Dahiya, president of Sarav Khap Sarav Jaat Mahapanchayat’s women wing has sought a judicial inquiry into the molestation alleged by two sisters in state roadways bus in Rohtak.

She said “Five women have come out in support of the three accused youths and have affirmed that the boys didn’t molest the sisters and former’s claim cannot be ignored. The quarrel was over a bus seat and not over the molestation alleged. Moreover, it is hard to imagine that three youths could molest the girls in a bus in Rohtak region and no co-passenger opposed them,” she pointed out.

“Had it been the case, other passengers would have thrashed the boys as the people of that region could never tolerate such misbehaviour with the girls. Following this incident, another video of the same girls thrashing a boy in a park has surfaced. How come whenever these girls thrash boys, someone is present to record it. It looks like a publicity stunt,” she pointed out.

The khap leader criticised the government for honouring the girls and said the state’s action was irresponsible. Despite ordering an inquiry into the matter, the government announced the bravery award on the basis of a video clip. Moreover, the boys have not been proved guilty as yet. If the boys are guilty they must face the music, but if they innocent, they must get justice since their future and carreer are at stake,” she added.
