The number of assault cases going on in our country is so high that even thinking about a future with improved women safety status looks like a distant dream. After the recent Chandigarh gangrape case, MP Kirron Kher had suggested girls to not take an auto when there are already some men present inside it.

Here is an incident from Dehradun where a Twitter user has shared her horrific experience on how she escaped a probable mishap. Point to be noted, she even refused to take an auto still this happened.

The girl, with the username @AISoKohlic, detailed the incident to the CM Trivendra Singh Rawat in nearly seven tweets. She boarded a city bus near the Clock Tower around 7 pm on Tuesday but the bus driver refused to stop the vehicle when she reached her destination

When the girl boarded the public transport she found only a handful of men were present. To her surprise when her stop arrived the driver and conductor refused to stop the bus.

When the conductor and the driver didn’t respond to her confrontation she decided to fake a call to the Police as the call was not getting connected. This is when the driver stopped the bus.

Responding to her Tweet the Uttrakhand CM Trivendra Singh Rawat directed Dehradun SSP to take prompt action and arrest the culprits. He also praised the girl for the way in which she handled the situation.

According to a report by TOI, the police late on Tuesday booked the unknown driver and conductor under Section 342 (punishment for wrongful confinement) of the Indian Penal Code and the search is on for the driver. But what is more shocking in the case is the fact that people are blaming the victim for “making it a big issue” and ruining the name of family as nothing really happened to her at the end.

Do we really need to wait for our daughters to get raped then only we can react? We appreciate the prompt action taken by the administration in arresting the accused conductor and seizing the bus.
