    Father of girl who was molested and hit by hotelier’s son opens up, narrates sorry tale

    exclusiveNagpur News.

    And the day it is, when the well wishers and the so called leaders would be discussing women rights, handing out their readily available comments and suggestions on how to let women secure their identity. Some would make tall claims to unleash a wave of difference in the society and paint the picture pink. But is the situation really improving?

    “No”, says a father who daughter is currently under mental trauma as she tries to get over the nightmare she faced a couple of days ago in the form of eve-teasing.

    This father took this opportunity to open his heart out on the day when the words of exaggeration are freely flowing in favour of women. Her girl was recently molested and hit by a son of an influential father who a city’s renowned hotelier.

    Though Hardeep Singh Arora who was recently arrested for the crime was let off in a go, the incident has raised numerous questions about women’s safety in Nagpur. The agony of the victim’s father against the accused from a ‘so called civilized family’ of city expressed his apprehension regarding the problems faced by his daughter and this entire episode.

    Here’s what this worried father narrated to Nagpur Today,

    “It was one regular day when my daughter went to college, and from there on proceeded towards her friend’s place to complete some pending work from college. She ran out of stationary, and went to the Mangalwari market to purchase the same. It was the time when she encountered Hardeep (the accused), who came and asked her to slide down the left seat window of the car she was travelling in. As soon as she rolled down the window glass, he unlocked the door and got into the car. He forced her to take it in front of his showroom (Bar Shopee). He started touching her and forcefully tried to kiss her. The girl pushed him back and rushed out of the car. The accused then slapped her in front of the onlookers. He her specs fell down.

    The girl immediately went inside the car again and left, when she overheard Hardeep calling her name and saying, ‘College aa dekh lunga, aajkal muh par acid fekne ke cases toh hote hi rehte hai!’ (Come to college, I will see you…Cases of acid attack have become quite common these days). She somehow reached home, narrated the entire incident to us, when we immediately left for the police station to lodge the complaint.”

    Police did not cooperate

    When asked about whether he was satisfied with the police action, he said, “The police did not cooperate, and they took the incident very lightly. After creating pressure, finally PI Mahadi lodged the complaint, but did not make any arrest immediately. They should have at least taken a PCR immediately. When the system is behaving in such a manner, how do girls live fearlessly in the society after all?

    We provided the police with all the proofs, Hardeep’s abusive and indecent messages, which were being received on my daughter’s cell phone even at the time when we were in the police station. But no concrete action was taken! He got the bail the very next day! Is it not obvious that my girl is not safe, after receiving threats and warnings from a guy who is freely roaming about?”

    The father himself now is taking care of her safety, dropping and receiving her from the college, making her stay with some trusted person or the other. But is this how the things should be? How do a girl walk and independently then?

    Women’s day it is! But does this society really deserve to celebrate this day? When daughters can’t walk fearlessly, fathers can’t sleep in peace! ‘Are the daughters really safe in Nagpur?’, a father precisely raises an apprehension.
