外文标题：Brave sisters fight molesters on Haryana bus, thrown off
CHANDIGARH: Despite the countrywide outcry against rapes since the gruesome Nirbhaya case in December 2012, young women in Haryana still have to fend off molesters on their own. This, even when they are travelling in a bus brimming with men.
A shocking video of two young sisters turning the tables on their molesters in a crowded bus went viral on Sunday leading to the arrest of the three accused. The drama unfolded on a Haryana Roadways bus heading from Rohtak to Sonipat on November 24, when Arti Kumar, 22 and her sister Pooja, 19, were filmed attacking their molesters with their belts, by a pregnant woman travelling on the same bus.
What made the incident all the more alarming is the fact that none of the co-passengers who are seen in the video, cringing and smirking, so much as raised a finger to come to the aid of the hapless sisters. In fact the co-passengers are seen in the video dissuading the girls from lodging a police complaint. The pregnant woman was the only one who objected to the harassment by the three men
Initially the duo, bachelor in computer application students, suffered in silence as the men passed obscene remarks and made lewd gestures at them. However when the men started picking on the pregnant woman as well, the girls took matters into their own hands and bravely fought back.
Eventually the sisters were overpowered, their mobile phones taken away and they were thrown off the moving bus causing them minor injuries. In the meantime the pregnant woman got off the bus at the next stop and accompanied the girls to the nearest police post.

So basically, all Haryana men are Eunuchs. They cant protect their women.

In this case not only the tree culprits should be punished ,along with them conductor & driver shoud also be punished and name of mute spectators should be publicised.
Well done girls!!! All of us should be proud of them. I hope the government also intervenes and give the harshest punishment to these criminals. If today no one acts then they will be harassing more women and girls in future.

Well Khudos to the girls but all the person sitting in the bus should be very happy to see them on TV and whole world laughing at them... there is some serious issue with our education system and the culture which doesn't teach the Man to respect the Women ..
