Barasat: Reviving the age-old debate on how women should dress, actor-turned Trinamool MP Chiranjit Chakroborty on Friday said women should be "conscious" of what they wear.

"We should definitely work towards removing this stigma but again women can be a little more conscious about what they are wearing," Chiranjit told reporters at the Barasat police station where he had gone to inquire regarding an eve-teasing case.

He, however, asserted, "any act of eve-teasing should be condemned and the culprit caught and punished."

Chiranjit inquired about the progress made in the case involving a youth who was caught allegedly teasing a girl at Barasat railway station in North 24 Parganas district last night.

The girl, a resident of Banamalipur here, was returning from tuition when the accused Ramesh Das started teasing her. He was caught by people at the station and was beaten up.

The girl`s father was also present at the station, sources said.

Das was then handed over to the police, produced before a local court that remanded him to judicial custody for 14 days.
