Exclusive! Rohtak bravehearts incident: Was thrashing of alleged molesters planned?
Rohtak, Dec 2: Two braveheart sisters in Rohtak, who took on three alleged molesters on board a moving Haryana Roadways bus, will be honoured for their bravery on Republic Day even as the incident triggered indignation and led the state government to suspend driver and conductor of the bus.
But sadly, there is another version of the story too which says that it was the girls who were at the wrong side, not the boys.
The accused boys in this case belong to Asan village near Rohtak and the sarpanch of the village, Raj Singh told OneIndia that the case has been portrayed in a wrong manner and the boys did not molest the girls.
The sarpanch said, "The whole fight was over a seat and the girls turned it into a big fight just to make a video so that they could post it on social media and grab publicity."
"The boys have were selected for military, but because of this case they have been barred. Media should talk to other passengers on the bus and bring out the real story," he further said.
The sarpanch the narrated the whole incident as follows:
The girls who were travelling in a bus stopped working and they got in another bus.
An old lady and a boy (one of the accused) were sitting on the seats which were allotted to the girls in the previous bus.
The fight escalated on the matter where the boy told the girl not to make the old lady leave her seat.
Still the girls made the old lady leave her seat and it was then when the boy commented on the girls and said that the girls have not been taught manners by thier parents. (bade budho ka bhi lihaz nahin karti).
After this the girls said that we will teach you a lesson for this and one of the sisters gave her phone to a girl and told her to make a video. She started thrashing and beating the boys with belt.
If the boys would have been guilty, then the people sitting in the bus would not left them. But in the incident, everyone was trying to stop the girl from beating the boy.
All the three youths - Kuldeep, Mohit and Deepak - were remanded to custody till December 6 without any fault.
Singh also said that if the boys would have been on fault then the people in the bus would not have let them go that easily and would themselves thrashed the boys for misbehaving with the girls.
Singh also told OneIndia on Wednesday, "Some passengers have also testified before the police and have informed the court about this version of the incident.
If more passengers come up and reveal the truth then the life of three boys will be saved."
The brave sisters hail from Thana Khurd village in Sonipat and support for the both the girls and praise for their brave act poured in from across the nation.
This new version of the incident raises many questions on both the boys and the brave sisters.
Meanwhile, the three accused in the case Mohit, Kuldeep and Deepak have been released on bail and after second video of the sisters came to fore, the families of the accused are now claiming that the girls are in the habit of picking up fights.
