Days ago, a shocking Instagram post from a girl named Shruthi Prakash about the trauma she faced while travelling from Bangalore to Chennai through Red Bus app gained the attention of public. The post shared by Shruthi shows how “victim blaming” comes hand in hand with sexual harassment in the society and the 26 year old sought help from public to amplify her post.
Shruthi was travelling from Bengaluru to Chennai in a bus operated by VHB travels on 7th of July. She bought the ticket to travel from the online platform Red Bus. Shruthi, through her post said that a helper of the bus groped her during 3 am inside the bus while she was sleeping. “When I woke up, I saw a man lying down, below my lower berth. When I asked him to what he was doing there, he responded saying ‘his hands were with him’ even though I didn’t mention it” said Shruthi, according to The News Minute.
“I immediately filed a complaint at the redBus app at around 4 am and by 4.20 am, the bus was stopped. I came to know that the man was a bus staffer” Shruthi further said. It has been reported that the Driver restarted the bus after an hour of scolding the miscreant. Though there was police intervention, Shruthi and her family members didn’t file a complaint after the victim had to hear the unnecessary advises from the driver and others including “your name will get spoilt”.
