Bareily: Some miscreants tried to pull a school student in their car while she was returning from school in Bareily, Uttar Pradesh just a week after the spine-chilling and brutal gangrape of a 23-year-old in a moving bus in Delhi. The girl managed to escape but miscreants did not stop and continued to trail her. They were caught only after the police and the girl's family members intervened.
One of the arrested boy is Chhatrapal Singh, former Secretary of Ruhelkhand University Student Union. Singh had been booked in a few cases earlier too.
After the arrest when the photo journalists and camera persons tried to take his pictures, Singh asked them to switch off their equipments, saying he has not involved in the abduction attempt. Why will we run after this girl. There are many girls in this world," the 22-year-old Singh said.
Singh has been in jail in connection with several cases including murder, but he was neither ashamed not feared the police.
Singh has been arrested with his four other friends when they tried to abduct the school. The incident took place on December 25 when some girls were returning home after attending a Christmas party in Bareily. On the way the girls passed a liquor vend where some boys passed lewd comments.
The girls started running away to escape the boys, who chased them. The frightened girls entered a fast food joint to save themselves. One of the employees pushed them inside the kitchen but the boys entered inside the shop.
When police questioned the boys they claimed that they had come to order pizza for someone. The students called up their relatives with the help of employees. When the family members and police reached the shop, the boys tried to flee but they were caught by the people. Police have arrested five accused and lodged FIR against them. According to Bareily SSP Veer Singh Chhatrapal Singh and his friends are known historysheeters.
