7 held as SHE teams crack down on eve-teasers
Hyderabad: SHE Teams of Hyderabad City Police have caught seven delinquents in three cases from different parts of the city. In the first case, three miscreants were nabbed while teasing and stalking women, who visited the NTR Park.
Three students –Rajender Phad, 24, Srinivas Solanki, 18, and Munde Praveen Kund, 18 — of Adilabad District arrived in the city to appear for some postal exam and stayed back after the examination to see the city and moved around the tourist spots. While they were sitting in the park, they saw a few girls in the park and went to them and commented. When the girls left, the trio followed them and tried to take a selfie with them.
Even as the harassed girls were trying to avoid them, the mischief mongers followed them. The entire episode was video-graphed by the SHE teams. The trio was arrested, produced before the court along with their parents, who were called by the magistrate from Adilabad to attend court.
In the second case, at Dilsuknagar bus stop, a woman was waiting for a bus. One T Anjaneyulu, 62, a private employee residing at Vanasthalipuram, came there and stood beside her. The sexagenarian tried to touch the woman’s hand keeping mobile phone in his hand. When she moved away from him, he got closer to her and repeated the same act. Even when she moved to another place, he again went there and stood beside her and started behaving in the same manner.
Frightened with his behaviour, the woman started to go away from the bus stop. The SHE Team video-recorded the entire episode and asked the woman about the issue. She described what had happened and gave a complaint. A case was registered and the person was arrested and produced in the court.
In the third case near Bojireddy College, three minor boys, studying Junior Intermediate were riding a bike making sounds and whistles near the college, when the girls are coming out. They were making rounds just in front of the college to draw the attention of the girls coming out and creating nuisance there. The SHE team caught them red handed with video evidence. The watchman and others present there also complained about the boys’ nuisance at the college every day. Their parents were called, counseled and warned against such things and asked them to appear before them for attendance.
