Are PGs Safe for Women in Bangalore?
Bangalore police investigate New Year's Eve for sexual assault
The officers had "credible evidence" and therefore started an investigation, said the police in Bangalore. Accordingly, she evaluated recordings from 45 surveillance cameras in the center of the Indian metropolis, where hundreds of revelers had welcomed the New Year on the weekend.
The police say they are investigating whether women were persecuted, sexually harassed and robbed on New Year's Eve in Bangalore. Video recordings had already appeared on social networks showing women crying and calling for help. The incidents brought back memories of New Year's Eve in Cologne a year ago. There, too, numerous women had been molested and robbed.
Western clothing style of women as a cause?
The state's interior minister, G. Parameshwara, described the attacks as "unfortunate". He also told the station "The Times Now" that a group of young people had come together who were "almost like Westerners". Not only did they try to adopt Western thought, but they dressed like that, "and then things like that happen". Parameshwara then later stated that he had been misquoted.
His remarks were sharply criticized by the central government. The Minister of State in the Ministry of the Interior, Kiren Rijiju, wrote on Twitter that Parameshwara's statements were "irresponsible". The mass sexual harassment should "not go unpunished", in a civilized society the safety of women is a "must".
"When will men learn to respect women?"
The head of the National Women's Commission, Lalitha Kumaramangalam, called on the politician to resign. "When will Indian men learn to respect women?" She told the PTI news agency. She would like to know whether Indian men are actually so "weak" that they "lose control" when they see women in Western clothing. Parameshwara must apologize to the women of the country and resign.
India is repeatedly alarmed by serious sexual assaults on women and gang rapes. In December 2012, a student was gang rape in New Delhi. She died of serious injuries a few days after the assault. Then a wave of protests went through the country and the relevant laws were tightened.
