TITLE: NATIONAL DEBATES – EVE TEASING |

INTRODUCTION:
HYPOTHESIS: Eve – teasing cases may have a drop if the laws are made stronger.
In the case of keenan-reuben , the accused were initially just convicted for 14days and then later 3 convicts were arrested under IPC sections 302 (murder), 324 (causing hurt by dangerous weapons) and 434 (mischief). I believe that the section 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code must be made stronger. At present offences such as eve teasing and sexual harassment are bailable. Either we should make the offence as non – bailable or the victim should be given the right to treat the accused in whichever way they wish.

Keenan Santos was stabbed viciously, and his intestines spilled out. As Bejnamin tried to get the girls into the restaurant, some of the thugs followed them. Reuben Fernandes got in their way and was viciously stabbed too. As onlookers watched in shock, Avinash Bali hurled a nearby ladder at them and pulled Keenan and Reuben into the restaurant. The thugs did not follow them into the restaurant, and left.
Still without assistance, Avinash and Benjamin struggled to get Keenan and Reuben to the hospital on time.
Keenan’s girlfriend informed his parents, who arrived just in time to watch him die 20 minutes after being admitted .
The police arrested 21 people in connection with the murder and produced them in court.

ABOUT MY TOPIC:
In the Keenan – Reuben case my topic is basically about how there should be stringent laws in connection with eve teasing and sexual harassment . According to me that sections 354 and 509 of the Indian Penal Code should be made stronger. At present, offences such as eve-teasing and sexual harassment are bailable. This is one of the major reasons why offenders soon turn out to be habitual offenders. In the case of Reuben and Keenan, the offenders went to the extent of killing those who opposed them. So , I guess eve-teasing should be declared a non-bailable offence.”
Initially , the police did manage to arrest the four main accused, who were then booked under IPC sections 302 (murder), 307 (attempt to murder), 324 (voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention).
It was only after the media pressure that all the 21 people who were part of the salvage killing were arrested. Even after the immediate arrest of the main accused, the question of justice being delivered still remains.
The case started with that of eve-teasing, however, none of the accused have been booked under charges of the same. India, having the bulkiest constitution and one the most detailed-interpreted law, there is no provision clearly stating eve-teasing as crime in India.
We have over 1000’s of sections explaining various acts for entertainment, tax property etc., but not even one section stating eve-teasing which is a serious menace in our society. However, Section 298 (A) and (B) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) sentences a man found guilty of making a girl or woman the target of obscene gestures, remarks, songs or recitation to a maximum jail sentence of three months. Section 292 of the IPC clearly spells out that showing pornographic or obscene pictures, books or slips to a woman or girl draws a fine of Rs. 2000 with two years of rigorous imprisonment for the first offender. For a crime as heinous as eve-teasing, which can leave a psychological scar in a victim’s mind, a minimum of 6 months sentence behind the bars should be a must, without eve-teasing being a bailable offence, which it currently is.
India and the youth – we need a wake up to the death of...
