Roadside Romeo without mercy

All of sudden a busy road in Guwahati started teeming with people in the morning. Vehicles stopped plying on the road. A huge crowd blocked the road for not less 30 minutes. Policemen were off from the scene. But why? All eyes seemed to have fixed on a scene where a girl threshed a youth.

Nobody came to the rescue of the youth under attack. Three other youths who appeared in the scene helped the girl beat up the youth more severally. That’s the incident which struck the attention of all when the satellite channels repeatedly were beaming the story on Monday.         

The fact of the matter is that the girl was running out of her patience when the youth in question has been following her for the last three days. For the last three days he has been following her passing lewd comments and what not. But tolerance has a limit. When she came to see the same youth on the road with same style she took a dao in her hands and started chasing the youth openly on the road.

He was caught and was slapped mercilessly. The youth tried his best to escape. But by them three other youths reached the spot who joined the girl. A section of the local residents called the youth a drug addicted who was later handed over to the police.

The incident assumed significance a month after a drug addict killed a college girl in Noonmati area in the city sending shockwaves across the state.
