Girls can’t walk freely in Modi’s constituency even inside varsity: Priyanka
Varanasi (UP): A female student was molested and stripped by three men, who also recorded a video of the act in Varanasi city of Uttar Pradesh in India.
The incident took place outside her hostel of IIT-Banarus Hindu Unirversity (BHU) when three men came on motorbike and subjected the student to the brutal act.
Hundreds of Banaras Hindu University (BHU) students held a protest on Thursday. They said outside elements were involved in the incident and demanded that outsiders be banned from entering the campus.
According to a complaint lodged by the woman, she had gone out of her hostel with a friend. They were near the Karman Baba temple when three men came there on a motorcycle, forcibly took her to a corner and gagged her after separating her from her friend.
The accused then stripped the woman, made a video of her and clicked photos. They let her go after 15 minutes and took her phone number, the complaint stated.
Students gathered near IIT-BHU’s Rajputana Hostel and protested against the incident.
Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra slammed the BJP government over the incident and asked if it was no longer possible for a woman student in Narendra Modi’s constituency to walk fearlessly inside her own educational institution.
In a post on X, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra asked if top institutions like IITs are not safe now.
“A woman student of IIT, BHU has been sexually assaulted in Varanasi. Some time back, the woman student was subjected to heart-wrenching violence on the university campus. The brazen attackers have also made a video of the incident. IIT students are protesting against the incident,” the Congress general secretary said in Hindi.
