Jajpur: When Gajapati district’s lady SP Sara Sharma has these days initiated steps to keep a close tab on eve-teasing and deal the road romeos with an iron fist by creating mass awareness through her SHE-TEAM logo and theme song sung by herself, a viral video of such incident that took place in Vyasanagar town of this district is doing rounds since yesterday.
A young man, claimed to be local driver but a migrant from Kolkata in West Bengal, is seen in the video being taught a lesson by the irate locals, especially the irate women.
Sources said that the virtually poetic justice to the alleged road romeo, identified as Sapan Singh, took place in the Vyasanagar College area.
It has been alleged that the accused harasses and resorts to eve-teasing when the women are on their daily morning walk.
However, yesterday, he fell into the dragnet of public wrath. Besides the local male members, he is seen being thrashed by the victim women assisted by the man-folk.
Later, he was handed over to the police.
