#1 SIKH FAMILY ON TRAIN ATTACKED, YOUNG SIKH GIRL STRIPPED AND ASSAULTED04-20-2013, 09:08 PM
NEW DELHI (KP) - A Sikh family’s trip on the Muri Express from Delhi to Patna Sahib turned into a horrific nightmare after their teenage daughter and the family was assaulted by hoodlums as police authorities stood by and watched.
Such savage attacks on helpless women, children, and minorities are so frequent that they have become the shameful trademark of a country that prides itself as being the world's most populous democracy.
Trouble began for the Sikh family at the Hathras Junction Station in Uttar Pardes when a dozen young ruffians boarded the Muri Express car S-5 in which the family from Gaziabad, Patel Nagar, was traveling. The young trouble makers immediately began to harass and taunt their teenage daughter using lewd remarks.
When the Sikh family protested their offensive behavior, the young men got up and suddenly started to tear off the clothes of the young Sikh girl. The Sikh men were also attacked and severely beaten by the ruffians and their dastars (turbans) ripped off.
