Mumbai was considered a safe city in the night for women to travel. Now it seems to be going the Delhi way. Mob molests 2 women on New Years day in Mumbai
But is only the mob responsible? What was the need to go out for a walk so late in the night. If you are dressed in a certain way, it becomes your responsibility to make sure you stay away from sensitive areas. Don't get me wrong, I wear western dresses too, but that does not mean I will go for a walk after a new years party (which will no doubt end late) as there obviously will be groups of people roaming the streets drunk and high, making merry. And its only inviting trouble.
All the drunken mob saw were 2 women walking towards Juhu Beach. It wouldn't have mattered if they were fully covered and from the looks of the photograph they were not wearing revealing clothes. A sad and a traumatic beginning for the 2 women and their families.
