Earlier, the "Shruti Case" of Faridkot had shocked the society."Such incidents are on the rise, consequently creating a fear psychosis among the parents over the security of their girls", lamented the UPKAR society while urging the political parties not to patronise goonda elements. Besides, the NGO also urged the Chief Minister to take immediate steps to curb the menace of eve teasing by ensuring police security at the educational institutions during beginning and closing times.
