Eve-teasing girls
Srinagar, Jul 25: Citizens of Baramulla district in North Kashmir witnessed another round of protest against the army jawans. The protesters were restrained only after an accused of ev-teasing was arrested .

The detained army jawan allegedly passed indecent remarks to a 15-year-old girl who was passing by the army camp at Haiderbeg in Pattan area, 30 kms from Baramulla.

After the protesters blocked Srinagar-Baramulla National Highway, the police conducted an identification parade and arrested a constable - Deshmukh from Armu media camp.

Local sources informed that the agitators withdrew their protest from the National Highway soon after Deshmukh's arrest. However, here one question remains - are Kashmiri girls safe at their own place?

The army jawans, who have been put on duty to assure security to the aam-admi of the valley, have been caught in several shameful incidents like rape, kidnap and many more.

Recently, two army men allegedly abducted and raped a young woman in Kulgam district of south Kashmir. People at Damhal Hanjipora came out on the roads and held demonstrations demanding stern action against the erring personnel.
