Police harassers lead to teens’ suicides

How terrible! Two teenage sisters in Madhya Pradesh (India) committed suicide after two police officers harassed and assaulted them in public and then at the girls’ house.

“The girls say they complained against the two men, following which the constables were suspended, but then the two constables started to go to the girl’s home and harassing them.”

Apparently they didn’t feel they could count on the law enforcement system and took matters into their own hands to stop the harassment 😦

Not too long ago, a teenager in Bangladesh committed suicide after experiencing ceaseless harassment for a year in public places. Her suicide helped lead to stricter enforcement of an anti-street harassment law. Will India follow suit? That could be a silver lining in this tragic story.
