December 1, 2014 5:30 pm
Three men are in jail in India after they were filmed being beaten on a bus by two sisters who accused them of sexual harassment.
A court remanded the men in custody for 14 days.
Mobile phone video of the incident, recorded by a passenger, has gone viral and comes amid growing concern in India about sexual violence against women.
The fatal gang rape of a student in Delhi in December 2012 prompted outrage and tougher anti-rape laws.
Correspondents say public sexual harassment of women, dubbed “Eve teasing” in India, is rampant in parts of the country and causes misery for women when they go out.
The latest incident happened in Rohtak district in the northern state of Haryana when the sisters, who are students, 22-year-old Aarti and 19-year-old Pooja Kumar, were on their way home.
