Women in Hijab Harrassed inside College campus

"I along with a friend around 10 PM was returning from the canteen after dinner when we saw a group of 10-12 men standing on the road. We were walking on our own but after noticing my attire they started shouting 'Jai Shri Ram' while pointing fingers at us. Later they started thumping their feet to intimidate us. We immediately ran away to save ourselves," said the final-year medical student. "I am a hijab-wearing Muslim, I always wear this attire. I have never faced such harassment in my life. There was no one in the street that day to save us. Is this how we have to live now?" she added.
