Schoolgirl puts UP police officer on the mat
In Barabanki, a schoolgirl asked police officers, "What is the guarantee that I will be safe if I complain against a big man?"
A senior UP police officer was put on the mat by a schoolgirl in Barabanki district during an outreach programme on women's safety awareness yesterday. A girl asked the police officer if we complain about someone, will we also meet with an accident. She was referring to the murder attempt on the Unnao rape victim just recently.
'If a powerful person does something wrong, then our voice against him will be heard?'- Priyanka Gandhi Vadra (@priyankagandhi) August 1, 2019
This is a question raised in U.P. during the Girl Child awareness campaign of Barabanki. The same question is in the mind of every woman and child today.

Police officers were visiting schools under the Balik Security Awareness Campaign in Barabanki, adjacent to the capital city of Lucknow. There, Additional Superintendent of Police (North) RS Gautam lectured children at one school that girls should be careful and if someone does something wrong with them then they should immediately call the toll free number of the police.
After the police officer finished his speecch, a girl asked, "What will happen if the person we are complaining about comes to know about it? Will we also meet with an accident?"
She askedthe officer, will I get justice? She said everyone knows that the rape survivor was targeted for killing. "The girl is struggling for life."
This truck was hit by a rape victim's car.
The officer was stumped by her questions.
The girl's question was tweeted by Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. She said the question was on the mind of every woman and child, and asked the BJP to explain.
