An incident that is sure to have taught an eve teaser a lesson he is not going to forget in a hurry has emerged from Chikkaberagi village of Raichur district when a girl used a knife to put an end to his harassment.
Anupriya, the girl from Chikkaberagi, who travels to Sindhanur every day for her studies, was fed up with the eve teaser identified as Devaraju, a resident of Thuruvihala village, who had been following and tormenting her for over six months.
The miscreant would follow her every day to and from her degree college in Sindhanur taluk and pester her to reciprocate to his advances, against which the girl warned him repeatedly.
When his acts became brazen and he started harassing her in front of other girls of her college, Anupriya decided that she had to do something about it, which would end her miseries.
She carried a knife in her purse and threatened to stab the eve teaser with it when he approached her again. Undeterred, the youth continued his wayward behaviour and on Thursday, when she would not put up with it anymore Anupriya pulled the knife on him.
This too did not have the desired effect on the youth prompting the brave girl to chase him around the Sindhanur bus stand, knife in hand.
