Another Jorhat shocker: Two girls fight back, resist molestation bid after five youths pulled them out of moving rickshaw; two molesters arrested

May 17 (NL Web Desk): A month after a girl wrote about her experience of being molested, groped and passed lewd comments by helmet-wearing masked youths in the heart of Jorhat town, two sisters were allegedly molested by five youths after they were pulled out of a moving rickshaw and taken towards the corner of a road in an apparent bid to outrage their modesty. The incident took place Monday night.
The two girls, however, fought and raised a hue and cry following which the molesters ran away. The brave sisters ran after their molesters who, they alleged, even tried to pull off their clothes before finally filing a complaint at Jorhat Sadar police station on the basis of which an FIR was lodged.
“It was around 8pm yesterday. We were coming home from Gar Ali when five youths pulled me and my sister out of the rickshaw at Rajamaidam area. While two of them surrounded me, two others were trying to pull my sister out of the rickshaw while the fifth had cornered the rickshaw puller. They then pulled us to a corner of the road and touched us at inappropriate places,” one of the victim sisters said Tuesday, adding that when they resisted, the molesters pushed them and escaped under the cover of darkness.
After the police lodged a complaint, people of the locality apprehended one of the molesters — later identified as Kalachan Ali and hailing from Nagaon— and handed him over to police. Another alleged molester was arrested Tuesday afternoon.
Monday’s incident comes a few months after a young college girl took to the social media to describe the ordeal she underwent after being harassed and groped by masked bikers in the heart of Jorhat town. Two more girls later approached police claiming they were also harassed by bikers.
