Weeks after a woman was gangraped and her eight-month-old daughter killed by the rapists in Gurgaon, a video has surfaced in which women are seen confronting a man, who allegedly tried to molest them on a busy road in the city. In the video shared by news agency ANI on Sunday, the women are seen beating the alleged molester. As seen in the video shot on Saturday, people soon gathered around the man and the women.
On May 29, a woman, who was on her way to her parental house after getting into a fight with her husband and neighbours, was raped by three men who gave her a lift. The woman said she got on a truck after leaving her husband’s house but the driver of the truck, who she claims was drunk, tried to molest her. The truck driver dropped the woman on the National Highway-8 after she resisted his advances. Unfortunately for the woman, she took a lift from three inebriated men, who were in a four-wheeled mini-auto-rickshaw.
The woman said the three men started molesting her soon after she boarded the vehicle. The woman told The Indian Express, ”They tried to smother my baby after she began to cry and then they threw my baby on the footpath. I asked them to stop, as my child was crying. Then they raped me”.
