Haryana government has suspended the driver and conductor of the roadways bus in which two college-going sisters were eve-teased by three youths.

The Director General of Haryana Transport department has ordered to suspend bus driver Balwan Singh and conductor Labh Singh of bus with registration no-HR 69 6150 with immediate effect, an official order issued in this regard said.

The suspension order issued by Haryana Roadways General Manager, Sonepat came after two sisters were eve-teased by three men in the moving bus on Rohtak-Sonepat road on Friday.

Taking serious note of this incident, Haryana government has also asked state Director General of Police (DGP) and state transport department to take steps for ensuring safety and security of passengers especially women travelling in the Haryana roadways buses.

The bus drivers and conductors have also been directed to make sure that such incidents do not occur in future, it said.

The two college-going sisters had confronted three eve-teasers inside a moving bus, with one of the girls even hitting the youths with her belt, even as passengers remained mute spectators.

The entire incident, recorded by a passenger on mobile phone, went viral both on television and social media. It showed the two girls using hand and belt to thrash the eve teasers, who appeared to be taken by surprise.

All the three youths — Kuldeep, Mohit and Deepak – were later arrested.

The parents of the two girls lodged an FIR with Haryana police against the three youths informing that the molesters got down at the Kansla village in Rohtak.

The victims in their complaint alleged that they were “teased” by some youths in a Haryana Roadways bus when they were going to their college on Friday.

When the victims objected, one of the accused started beating them up.

The father of the two sisters alleged that there was pressure from the panchayat that the girls should withdraw the complaint.

    Till the time India accords recognition to panchayats there will be no solution to such sorry situations. Panchayats are shamelessly biased against women and do everything they can to protect menfolk.

        Excellent stop by Haryana government by arresting the molesters and suspending the driver and conductor. What the panchayat members did was unlawful. Let them keep using their judgement to come up with these silly suggestions, public will never take them seriously, just like a toddler who messes up it's bib while eating.

            The sisters should be lauded for their bravery. Surprised that Haryana govt taken steps to punish the culprits, very rare gesture though.
