Eve teasers force closure of school in Yogi's hometown

The police have now lodged a case against unidentified eve teasers and launched a crackdown against them

The notice pasted on the gate of a co-educational inter college near Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath's home town of Gorakhpur, informing about the indefinite closure of the institution takes the commoners by surprise.

And what surprises the passers-by is the reason for the closure of the college. It's the ''terror of eve teasers''.

In a bid to save the girls from the terror of the eve-teasers, the principal of Jawahar Lal Nehru Inter College, which is situated at Tilora in Gorakhpur district, has closed the institution for an indefinite period.

According to the sources, where over two thousand boys and girls study, the management was ''forced'' to take this decision after its repeated complaints to the police to check the menace failed to yield any positive results.

''We lodged complaints with the local police several times seeking action against the eve-teasers, who harassed the girls while coming to and going from the college but no action was taken,'' Kailash Chaubey, the principal of the college, said.

He said that incidents of eve-teasing happened almost every day. ''The eve teasers even attacked the teachers, when they objected to their acts,'' Chaubey said.

The police have now lodged a case against unidentified eve teasers and launched a crackdown against them. The in-charge of the local police outpost has been suspended on charges of laxity, sources said.

''We have assured the college management that stern action will be taken against the eve teasers and requested it to open the institution,'' a senior police official said in Gorakhpur.

Earlier also hundreds of girls, all students of a school in state's Bareilly district, had stopped going to the school after being hassled by the eve teasers.
