Patna: Taking strict note of the Zee News’ report about a woman being molested by a crowd in broad daylight, Patna police on Thursday night arrested the owner and manager of Bob Hotel where the incident took place along with the youth who accompanied the girl in the hotel.
Assistant Sub Inspector of the area, Shivraj Singh has also been suspended.
Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has ordered DGP of the state to take strict action against the culprits promising that they will not go scot-free.
Earlier in the day, a young woman was manhandled and her clothes torn apart at the Exhibition Road of Bihar’s capital Patna.
Visuals caught on camera showed miscreants trying to tear the girl’s attire.
Sources said that the woman was in a restaurant with his boyfriend when some miscreants caught hold of the couple and dragged them on road.
The mob then beat up the boy and tore the clothes of the woman in presence of hundreds of onlookers. The woman was then chased by them.
Reflecting upon the state’s sorry law and order condition, the incident occurred in broad daylight and there was not a single policeman presenting the area. What was more disgusting was that despite a huge crowd of onlookers present, no one came to rescue the girl who kept struggling and shouting for help.
