Couple thrashed for hugging in Kolkata Metro

Representational

Meanwhile, authorities in the Kolkata Metro released an official statement on their Facebook page saying that they were looking into the incidents and that no complaint had been lodged with them at the time of publishing the post.

Ultimately, moral policing is a symptom of poor law and order. Good qualities are totally lacking in young generation people and morality a distant dream.

Dear commuters, we are trying to enquire into an incident which has allegedly taken place y'day at Dumdum Metro stn. No... Nothing. It is the inevitable fallout of year-long vulgarity shown by a section of young generation. While no explanation was given from Kolkata Metro on it, it was suspected that someone handing social media for the public utility posted personal views by mistake. As soon as the metro reached the Dum Dum metro station, the youth was forced out of the train to the platform and beaten black and blue, the report says. In their attitude, arrogance and "don't" care gesture are very evident.

A comment posted on Facebook from Kolkata Metro's page on Tuesday seemed to defend the mob that beat up a couple in a train compartment for hugging each other.

Chicago improved to 16-10 on the year and entered Tuesday in first place in the NL Central, half a game ahead of Pittsburgh. Colorado was last in the majors with a.224 team batting average, a number that plummets to.203 away from Coors Field.

The CCTV footage in the station did not record any incident of an assault, she claimed, though videos of the thrashing, shot by eyewitnesses, have gone viral on the social media. A woman protester, hugged another woman, and said, "What is bad in a hug?"

A journalist, who witnessed the incident, said the train was crowded and the couple, in their mid-twenties, were standing in the portion reserved for senior citizens. The entire incident took place inside the metro coach.

Indrani Banerjee, the spokesperson of the Metro Rail, said yesterday that appropriate action would be taken in the matter if the victims came forward with a complaint.

"A young couple embraced in Kolkata metro". Finally, when things started to get worse, some of the passengers protested and saved the couple from further harm. The security official present at the station did not report anything. Screenshots of the comment were shared widely on social media on Wednesday.
