Fed up with sexual harassment 16 year old girl herself burnt on Saturday
A 16 year old Dalit girl from a village in Sangrur town of Punjab set herself burnt on Saturday. The girl fed up of being sexually harassed by four youth from the Jat community. The daughter of a brick-kiln worker put up with the harassment for 20 days at Kal Banjara village of this district before taking the extreme step on Saturday. Police registered the case only on Monday as they were reportedly busy with security arrangements for chief minister Parkash Singh Badal’s visit to Sangrur on Sunday.
Girl revealed the names of four members
The girl named four youth from the Jat community – three from her village and the fourth is from Khadewal – for stalking her and making lewd gestures and comments for the past 20 days. The youth had been telling her to accept a mobile phone to take their calls. All four are escaped and efforts are kept on them to arrest.
