Women safety: Bengaluru's night of shame

Women safety: Bengaluru's night of shame

It's official: Bengaluru doesn't know diddly-squat about celebrating - it only knows hooliganism. And just like in Delhi, women who dare to have a good time in public, often end up getting mauled. Does anyone recognise the city anymore?

When it comes to the safety of women, Bengaluru is no better than Delhi, and Saturday night was its final confirmation. Anarchy prevailed on the streets after 11 pm as revellers gathered in the heart of the city - MG Road and Brigade Road - to welcome the New Year. But despite "elaborate" security arrangements, women were molested, and children scared out of their wits, while male friends and relatives had a tough time protecting them from unruly men. And all this happened despite the 1,500 policemen deployed in the area.

Thousands of people, on bikes, cars and on foot, converged here for revellery. Though police had initially claimed to take all precautions to ensure an 'incident-free' New Year, it seemed they underestimated the nature of the mob.



Caught in an unruly mob, women who didn't have the protection of a helpful male friend or relative sought refuge with women cops on MG Road

All hell broke loose close to midnight as hooligans in the garb of revellers started pawing, molesting and passing lewd remarks on women on the streets, forcing some of them to literally take off their stilettoes and run for help.

BM lensmen out on MG Road and Brigade Road on Saturday night became first-hand witnesses to this brazen, mass molestation of women, out in the open and in police presence.


NIGHT OF HORRORS Bangalore Mirror's photojournalists on MG Road and Brigade Road on Saturday night were first-hand witnesses to the
brazen, mass molestation of women. The men were too many, and too unruly, for even the cops to do anything


COPS HAD TO PICK AND CHOOSE

Former city police commissioner NS Megharikh (in charge of New Year's Eve security in the city) had claimed that the entire city police force, in addition to men from reserve battalions, was to be deployed on the city streets to maintain law and order during New Year celebrations.

However, none of these arrangements were of any help to the women who became easy targets for drunk hooligans. Badly outnumbered on the streets in the middle of thousands of revellers, the cops had no option but to take a backseat and intervene intermittently depending on the 'gravity' of the situation.



As crowd-control began, many young women, some of them weeping, started to run towards women police officers, stilettos in hand


"I personally went and asked one of the cops deployed on the streets to go to the aid of two women being accosted by a group of youth on MG Road. He went and chased them but they were back to the spot in a couple of minutes.

There was nothing much that they could do as the group was back and the women were also in the same crowd," said a working professional who was walking down MG Road to join his wife and head home on Saturday night.

NO CASES FILED

Despite photographic evidence and eye-witness accounts, city police officially claimed that they have not registered a single case of molestation or harassment.

Ironically, Sandeep Patil former deputy commissioner (central) of the city, under whose limits Brigade Road and MG Road fall, told BM that a number of women did approach the cops seeking help as they got separated from their family members and friends.

"So we used our public address systems to locate and our men ensured they faced no hardship. No case of molestation has been registered so far," he added.

Similar statements were made by Nagendra Kumar, deputy commissioner of police, Command Centre, Bengaluru, as he told BM that even the city control room did not receive any such distress calls and most of the calls received during New Year celebrations on Saturday night were either regular enquiry calls or for traffic assistance.

"We got around 450 calls at the city control room when on Saturday night, especially after 10 pm till wee hours in the morning, and not even one was about women being assaulted or molested," he said.


COPS OUTNUMBERED

However, some of the police personnel deployed on the streets had a different story to narrate to BM. A woman police officer deployed on Church Street had to chase away a couple of men trying to molest and strip an inebriated woman. There were at least 1,500 policemen on duty on MG Road and Brigade Road areas, according to the police department. However, the number of revellers ran into several thousands, and they clearly had the upper hand.

"It is very disturbing to see women caught in such helpless situation," she added.

Sources in the police department deployed on duty pointed out that the decision to extend the deadline for New Year Celebrations till 2 am also was a major cause of concern for the cops on duty. A senior police official also told BM that the city police announced for the deadline extension due to pressure from some of the commercial establishments, especially the drinking joints in the central division.


LESSONS FROM THE PAST

According to retired senior police officers, the New Year revellers of the city are always an unruly mob and it was the duty of the police to anticipate it and deploy proper security measures.

"It has been the case since the 70s. Handling the New Year crowd in Bengaluru is very difficult, but that means the police department should have a clear plan and be well-prepared to ensure there are no major incidents," said Ajai Kumar Singh, retired director-general of police.






TRAFFIC PLANS FLOPPED

The traffic police booked only 461 cases of drunken driving in the city during on New Year's Eve. Interestingly, on the previous night, 292 cases were booked in the East subdivision alone. On Saturday night though, riders could be seen openly accosting women on the street. The traffic police had also announced that it would barricade all major flyovers from 9 pm on Saturday night but they were open till about 10.30 pm. Traffic regulations were also in place and vehicular movement was restricted at strategic points on MG Road ahead of the celebrations, but too did not work as expected.

The 108 ambulance service attended as many as 471 emergency calls from Bengaluru city alone, out of which 130 were trauma cases.








THE DELHI WAY

Civil society members have reacted with absolute shock over the gradual degradation of Bengaluru into a city unsafe for women. They pointed out that it was high time for introspection not only for the law enforcement agencies but also for the city's residents.

Some of them expressed shock and demanded that the police act against those responsible for such shameful criminal acts.

"It is disheartening to see where Bengaluru is going. We often hear such incidents in Delhi but hearing that shocking news from Bengaluru is really painful. I think the culprits should get caught and punished and that should be made an example. I think young men need to be educated on how to behave," said Waseem Khan, a city-based fashion photographer.

According to the police statistics, Bengaluru had 690 cases of sexual harassment and molestation booked under Section 354 in 2014 out of which the accused in 22 are yet to be arrested. In 2015, the city had 714 cases of molestation and 171 of them are still under investigation. In 2016, the police registered 756 cases of sexual harassment and 559 of them are still under investigation.

"It is disturbing to know that such cases are on the rise in the city and each and every one of us should realise the gravity of the situation. It is not just the police but all of s have to take a conscious decision to respect women and inculcate strong values," said Sathya S, a communication consultant and social activist.


'Culturally deprived people get sadistic pleasure on such occasions'
* Ragini Dwivedi, Actor

It is a big cause of concern that such incidents are happening in Bengaluru that is considered as one of the safest cities for women in the country. It is noticeable that such incidents are happening during major celebrations. To put a full stop to such incidents, the authorities should take serious action to control crime against women. A good idea will be to resort to segregation of crowds if the police want to prevent such incidents from occurring again.
* Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, Biocon CMD

Such events happening in the city is scary and the authorities should nip such crimes in the bud. We are a different kind of city and most citizens residing here are peace-loving; so it is vital that authorities deal with such incidents with a heavy hand. On New Year's Eve, people are in a different frame of mind and alcohol adds to the mischief of a few uncouth people and the police should deal with it strictly before it turns into a menace.
* Manoviraj Khosla, Fashion Designer

Women can freely go to the bar and I personally won't have any apprehensions with my wife moving freely around Bengaluru at night. I think this was a one-off incident where men may have done something in drunken stupor. Having said that, it goes without saying that the revellers who misbehaved deserve the harshest of punishments, but that does not necessarily make Bengaluru unsafe for women.
* Sanjana Galrani, Actress

Bengaluru may turn out to be another Delhi if proper security measures are not enforced. We are paying taxes and ready to pay higher taxes if the government is ready to spend it on proper security. Also, there have to be stricter laws. The number of cops needs to increase. The law in India is not very strict. That's why such problems persist. If you look at other coun-tries, the laws are not so lenient with molesters.
* TV Mohandas Pai, Infosys ex-CFO

Over the past few years, the city has grown at a rapid pace and this has also given rise to a kind of cultural deprivation among the people who are not exposed to a certain kind of lifestyle. During New Year's Eve, miscr-eants throng the city plazas to get sadistic pleasure by indulging in molestation and eve teasing. It is high time the police take strict action against such people and instil fear so that they refrain from indulging in such activities.

Too many sex-starved people in this country. They see a woman in a short skirt, and they can't keep their dicks inside their pants.

This incident in Germany seems worse. But I see some cultural similarities nevertheless:

Well, I think most peepuls are not so despo that they will grope strange women, in my opinion. But even if a small percentage of men does it, it becomes annoying.

its such a art of shame towards a country like germany. hitler anna would have never appreciated such thing towards germany and german nari's.
based on similarities, the thing is quite same. Even in our Bharat, our prestigious bharatiya nari's have faced same consequence as german nari's.
also, german language is known to have using our Bharatiya Sanskrit language(which makes me proud as a Bharatiya Nagarik).

Best advice I would give is, recommend these sanskarless peepuls to do pranayam and use of patanjali products,which will make them mentally strong and polite over all the nari's of our prithvi.

Bri Satan, yes Sanskrit is classified under Indo-European languages, under the Indo-Iranian category. Other categories include Germanic, Italic, etc.

It was noticed that Sanskrit has many similarities with European languages, so the theory is that all these languages share a common "ancestor" language. From the common "ancestor" language, different languages arose.
