New Year in Germany’s Cologne and few more cities started on a gruesome note of sexual harassment, which got repeated again on Tuesday 31st May, after more than 1000 women were groped, assaulted and robbed at music festival and mass gatherings. Police has arrested three men right at this moment, aged between 28 and 31. Two of the three arrested men are reported to be from Pakistan. Police are still searching for three more accused men.
At Schlossgrabenfest music festival in Darmstadt, three women were barricaded and harassed sexually by a large group of men. By the end of the day 15 more women came forward and lodged complaint for getting harassed in a similar manner. The number of official complaint received by women was limited, but the number of assaulted women soars disgustingly high.
Ferdinand Derigs from Darmstadt police informed, ““These people approached the women, danced around them and touched them in an inappropriate way. Groping was apparently the main motivation.”
Apart from the Pakistani men, women have reported against men belonging to Arab or North African descent. The recent incident has sparked up anger in the entire Europe. Several anti-refugee groups marched and protested after the women from their country got harassed supposedly by refugees those flooded the country. Earlier in May, a similar incident was noticed in a cultural open air fest in Berlin.
The recent episode is a disgrace for the entire world and not just Germany. Women are getting besieged at a music festival. The place that is meant for having fun and unwind; and unquestionably not meant for being groped by unwanted hands!
