Karate sisters knock  down road Romeo

­The parents of Komal and Kanchan, two sisters, in Bihar’s Vaishali district are thanking Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for his directive to impart martial arts training to school girls, which aimed at enabling the female students take on eve-teasers.

Having passed out from a government school where they were taught a lesson or two in self-defence, the two sisters gave a road Romeo such a befitting reply that he not only touched the girls’ feet and begged mercy, but also started addressing them as his sisters.

The incident took place in Lalganj when the two girls were on their way to college on their bicycle. A 17-year-old boy stopped the duo in the middle of the road and held the hand of Kanchan. An enraged Komal got down from her bicycle and punched the boy right on his nose which left the tormentor bleeding. Recovering from the “shock”, the boy tried to hit back, but Komal gave him another kick which made him lick the dust.

The two sisters then caught the eve-teaser by his collar and dragged him to the nearby police station. By that time, a huge crowd had assembled there to watch the bravery of the girls.

“The crowd remained mute spectators and nobody came forward to help my children,” said the girls’ father Vivekanand Ojha, who lamented that although he had complained about the boy’s misdemeanour to the police, the cops never took any action. At the police station, the crowd, which swelled further, demanded that strict action be taken against the tormentor.

The boy then fell at girls’ feet, begged for mercy and promised to behave properly if given a chance. The girls’ father later did not lodge a formal FIR saying that since the offender was a minor, it could jeopardise his career. The acting station house officer (SHO) of Lalganj police station SN Babu said the boy was let off with a stern warning after the girls and their parents relented.
