Chandigarh: Days after the Rohtak sisters - Aarti and Pooja were seen beating three youths, who were reportedly harassing them onboard a bus in Haryana, a lady passenger from the same bus on Wednesday said that the youths were not indulged in eve-teasing, but the issue was about seats.
While speaking to the media, an old lady, who was travelling in the same bus ridiculed the girls' claim that the three youths passed lewd comments and harassed them. The lady asserted that the issue between the sisters and the men was about seats and nothing else.
The latest revelation comes two days after the Haryana government on Monday announced that it will honour the two sisters, who single-handedly took on three alleged molesters in a moving bus, on Republic Day as the girls came in for praise for their bravery.
The brave girls, Aarti and Pooja, thrashed the youths even as they were themselves assaulted by them. The girls hit one particular youth with a belt and their hands and legs in the incident that took place Friday, even as passengers remained mute spectators.
The matter came to light after a woman travelling in the same bus recorded the incident on her mobile phone, police officials said Sunday.
The sisters claimed that the bus stopped after some distance and the youth, and his accomplices, pushed them out of the moving bus and started hitting them. While one girl fell on the road, the other one fell in a field.
One of the sisters then attacked the youth with a brick after which he fled from the spot.
The bus crew and other passengers neither helped the girls nor did they inform police.
The girls called up the police and women helpline but failed to get any response.
All the three youths -- Kuldeep, Mohit and Deepak - were later arrested.
