A post related to India’s IT capital Bengaluru is going viral on social media. A man living here has shared a scary incident that happened with his wife on social media platform, X.
It was told in the post that a group of men was following the car in which his wife was sitting.
As per further information from the X handle of Srijan R Shetty “I’ve never felt unsafe in Bangalore – I know my privilege of being a Kannada speaking male – but last Thursday night I felt how unsafe certain parts of the city are post 10pm. I’ve seen those horrific videos of fake accidents in Sarjapur where hooligans have tried to blackmail people in the car.”
The tweet further said “On 8th November, my wife offered to drop off some other colleagues (2 females, one male) considering it was hard to get a cab from Sarjapur. Their car was chased down by a bunch of men for a few km – she was smart enough to stop only on the main road and inform the cops as soon as possible.”
The tweet further added “The men demanded that they step out of the car – which she didn’t – for alleged damage during the chase. A few tempo drivers hit her car from the backside and joined the man in the green shirt in trying to pressurise people who couldn’t speak Kannada. None of the bystanders helped the three women and a guy in the car.”
The tweet further added “If it wouldn’t have been for her wits of calling the cops and then calling us and 10 of her friends to immediately join her at her location, the incident could have taken a different turn. This city deserves better than this, we need security and we need it now. Sarjapur has been a hotspot for these incidents and we need to figure out a solution to curb this menace.”
