If you have been reading the news lately then you are probably aware of the infamous Chandigarh stalking case, where a woman was harassed and stalked by a BJP leader's son in the wee hours of the night. Kundu claimed that, she was almost kidnapped by two men, who followed her for nearly 30 minutes, for over seven kilometers.
Kundu alleges that the two men were drunk and at one point blocked her path with their SUV, and the man in the passenger seat started walking towards her vehicle.
But what would those guys have done to my life if they had caught me?
"This time they're telling us when we can and cannot go out of the our houses".
"Right at the turn, they blocked the road in front of my auto, and the guy in the passenger seat got out of the vehicle and started walking towards me".
"I was in a full-blown panic attack by now because they would keep trying to corner me, and I'd somehow manoeuvre my way out and keep moving".
'My hands shaking, my back spasming from fear, half in tears, half bewildered, because I didn't know if I'd make it home tonight'. According to her statement he chased her in their auto, then got out and started banging on her window. Don't ever think you have the right to stop me #AintNoCinderella, ' wrote another user with the twitter handle @queenpsays, along with a picture of her in jeans in a red top. One notable poster: Sharmistha Mukherjee, daughter of India's ex-President Pranab Mukherjee and a politician in her own right.
Ramveer Bhatti - the vice president for the Bharatiya Janata political party in Chandigarh - was speaking about a recent incident wherein the son of a fellow party leader was found stalking a 29-year-old woman. He added, "Why was she driving so late in the night?" The atmosphere is not right.
The Times of India quoted Bhatti as saying: 'Parents must take care of their children.
Twitter was flooded with women posting pictures of themselves outside their homes at night, mocking Bhatti and condemning his remarks which they said were shaming victims instead of supporting them.
Using the hashtag, other women began sharing photographs of themselves living their lives regardless of the time of night, reiterating the fact that staying out late is not in any way encouraging or welcoming inappropriate behavior.
Bhatti's shameless victim-shaming sparked an outrage on Twitter, where Indian women have started posting their late night selfies with the hash tag #AintNoCinderella.
