Is this what sportspersons deserve? A thrashing?
A national level sportsperson deserves the best of facilities, all the backing that he/she needs to make it big and win laurels for the nation. Instead, Dolly Singh, a national level kabaddi player from Kanpur was thrashed and her nose was broken.
Why? Because she resisted a molestation attempt. There are two layers of crime here.
One, the molestation itself.Â A woman shouldnâ€™t be molested. She isnâ€™t anyoneâ€™s private property. Secondly, when such a heinous act is being committed, which woman would â€˜allowâ€™ it to happen?
Naturally, when she resisted, they let her off, only to come back and beat the living daylights out of her. Assaulted in broad daylight by a group of goons, she was left with a bloodied and broken nose.
Singh was quoted by ANI as saying, “When I had come back home a month back, some locals in the village had mistreated me. On 12 June some 10-12 boys with their faces covered came and started abusing me. They even hit me. I received severe injuries. They did so because I complained against them.”
A probe has been ordered into the incidents but no arrests have been made so far.
