Passengers Strip-Searched A Teen Girl And Shaved Off Her Head In This Train

Published on 12 January, 2017 at 6:57 pm By

Being human is more than just the name of Salman Khan’s NGO. It is about acting like a human being and treating all living things on this planet with love, respect, compassion and care. Time and again, the sheer barbarism in our society makes us wonder if, in fact, we are humans?

One such incident happened recently on the Howrah-Jodhpur Express.

A 17-year-old girl, accused of stealing in 3AC compartment of Howrah-Jodhpur Express, was strip searched and humiliated by the passengers and her head was shaved off by them.

The angry mob went so berserk that they also accused the TTE of being hand in glove with the teenager.

The TTE revealed:



Passengers verbally abused me. They accused me of being her associate when I asked them to hand over the girl to GRP. It was sheer barbarism, the way they treated the poor child. Women stripped her, while a few men assaulted her. They cut her hair.

Six passengers were booked under several sections of IPC by the police.

When the girl’s father was questioned, he mentioned that the girl suffers from some mental disorder for which she was being treated and the police had wrongly registered her age as 19 so that she doesn’t get the benefits of being a juvenile offender.

The father also added that when the girl was presented before a local judge, the judge did not take notice of her current mental condition.

We do not know what the reality is. But we do know that taking the law & order in one’s hand only leads to a disruptive civil society. No one knows whether or not she indeed stole something. But even if she did, were the passengers behaving like civilised humans when they stripped her and shaved her head? Is this not a vigilante justice?

Every citizen of India has a fundamental right to dignity. And infringing upon that right has to be taken seriously. The passengers of the train who behaved so abysmally with the girl violated her Constitutional right.
