A drunk man who had been indulging in eve teasing and harassing local girls met with the deserving rewards. The incident took place at Bhubaneshwar’s Utkal University campus when Binod Kumar Sahoo, a private school tutor, stalked a female MBA student who was walking towards her hostel.
While in a total state of inebriation, the man has been alleged to stop his motorcycle in front of her, and offered her a lift. “When I refused, he made indecent gestures at me. He even pulled down his pants in front of me,” said the girl.
The girl picked up a bamboo stick and scared him away. Soon accompanied by a friend, who is a law student, the duo spotted him and gave him a good thrashing.

The two girls continued beating Sahoo in full public view. Though Sahoo pleaded for mercy, the girls did not relent.
Immediately after the incident took place, a PCR van rushed to the spot and Binod was taken to Saheed Nagar police station where he was detained for interrogation.
Sahoo admitted he misbehaved with the girl. “I was drunk and did not know what happened around me,” Sahoo told mediapersons.
The girl who has come out as Pratikshya Acharya shared a long post on Facebook regarding the hassle she faced and mentioned how she and her friend Arpita Aparajita Badajena took control of the entire situation.
Following the incident the students have demanded tight security on the campus. They say a police outpost on the campus is lying defunct. It’s an unfortunate truth that that the number of incidents of women being sexually harassed, and sometimes assaulted, are rising all over India. Tolerance of such incidents could lead to more severe forms of abuse and encourage more individuals to participate.
