Jaipur, Feb 19 : Although the government claims that they are trying to make cities safe, particularly after the gangrape of the 23 year old in Delhi, the tale of a 15 year old in Jaipur questions those claims.
It is only the presence of mind of the girl which saved her from being molested in Jaipur. The girl fought back four molesters who tried to abduct her in an SUV.
Also, after the Delhi gangrape of a 23 year old student, this girl had taken precautionary measures by carrying a kitchen knife. In an interview with CNN-IBN, the girl said that four men tried to abduct her while she was on the way to tuitions.
What comes as a shock is that although the incident took place on a busy main road, none of the on-lookers came forward to help. "Two of them were inside the car, the other two held me and tried to push me inside it," the girl said.
"Two of them were inside the car, the other two held me and tried to push me inside it," the girl said.
"When the fourth guy entered the car, I kicked him and he fell. The other three also came out and started slapping and abusing me," she added.
"There were people and I was wailing like a child but no one came forward. They did not even bother to call up the police. I would say every girl should keep a safety device - a pepper spray, a knife anything," the girl said.
A case has been registered against the 4, although unknown.
Although proud of her bravery, the parents have shown disappointment that such an incident should take place in Rajasthan.
