The whole country was in a rude shock on the New Year's day of 2017 as the news of mass molestation in Bangalore broke out. Condemnation from all corners poured in and the officials were pressurised to handle the case and book the guilty.
Deepika Padukone's mother, Ujjala Padukone spoke to the Indiatimes about the tragic incident and said that she feels paranoid imagining girls stepping out alone in vulnerable areas of the city without being harassed. She said,
"As a mother, I'm paranoid of my daughters driving or stepping out alone in vulnerable areas. It is so contradictory when in their respective careers, my husband and I keep telling them to reach out to the skies."
She further commented, "It is quite upsetting because such things can happen to anyone in any part of the country. It makes you wonder what kind of people you are creating." We hope the criminals will be booked at the earliest.
