#SheToo: Girls Slashed Below Waist at Mela
India Today reported as many as two dozen victims of such attacks – all knifed below the waist – by “anti-social elements”. The victims were left bleeding and are under treatment at a government hospital. The report quoted District Magistrate Alok Ranjan Ghosh and SP Manish Kumar as telling India Today TV that they were trying to identify the culprits with CCTV footage. Locals blame the administration for doing nothing about such incidents being repeated every year.
