Duo arrested for eve-teasing 2 women
Kolkata: Two youths have been arrested for allegedly eve-teasing two women late on Thursday night, after a distress call was received at the police control room.
According to sources, on Thursday night two young women were returning home after watching a movie at South City mall at around 2 am. When they were waiting for a cab, a blue hatchback car blocked their way. It has been alleged that two youths sitting inside the car used derogatory words and abusive gestures towards them.
Initially, the two women did not react to their words and tried to move aside. After a few minutes, the accused youths left the spot in their car. However, they came back after a while and started doing it again. Sensing danger, one of the women called the police control room and sought help.
As soon as the call was received, a mobile patrolling van in the Lake police station area was instructed to reach the spot urgently. But before the arrival of police, the duo fled the scene. After police reached the spot, the women narrated the incident and also provided the registration number of the car. Immediately, the number was circulated through wireless transmission and the car was intercepted in front of M R Bangur Hospital after a while.
Later, the women were taken to the police station, where they identified the accused persons. Both the accused youths were subsequently arrested.
