Most Covered Story

The law and order situation in Uttar Pradesh seems to be worsening even further. Several promises made by the government are not showing any results on the ground. Crime has started to take place in broad daylight instead of at night. The Yogi Adityanath government has created anti-Romeo squads to protect women but harassment of women continues. In Tanda district girls were molested by seven-eight men and a video of the entire incident was made. The girls cried to the hoodlums to leave them alone, but they did not stop. The police swung into action only after the video went viral on social media.
