According to The News Minute, the SHE teams deployed by the Hyderabad city police were on the look during the final day of the Ganesh procession. They wanted to check or anyone harassing women and to nab the offenders. Out of 30 men, who were arrested for molesting women, 8 were minors. Shocking isn’t it?
In their official press release, the cops said “While the teams were observing several locations, some people were following the procession and sprinkling water on women. Some were throwing water packets. Some people were caught for throwing paper pieces and flowers on women. Some were taking selfies with women without their knowledge. Some were blowing whistles and shouting at the ladies.”
“Some of them followed and stalked the women. Few others were trying to touch the ladies inappropriately in an inebriated condition. All these activities were video recorded and the accused were caught red handed with video evidence,” the statement read.
The cops said that a majority of the offenders were caught at Tank bund, next to Hussain Sagar, while others were caught at SR nagar, Charminar, Falaknuma, Mehdipatnam, Chaderghat and Secunderabad. “Cases were registered and they are being produced in the court. Dozens were warned for creating nuisance,” the police added.

SHE teams were introduced in Telangana state with a motto to provide safety and security to women. And we are glad that the teams actually caught these men in action. However, this case only shows that some men just can’t keep it in their pants even during something as religious as Ganpati visarjan.
