Two women are at a bus stop in India. They are sisters. There is also a group of men there. The men harass the women.

Everybody gets on the bus. The harassment gets worse on the bus. The men touch one of the women. The women do not like this. They tell the men to stop, but it does not help.

The men start to hit the second woman. Her sister wants to help her, but she is too far. She must take off her belt. She hits the men with it.

The sisters tell the police about this. The police investigate this incident.

Difficult words: harass (to say and do bad things to somebody and make him or her feel very bad), harassment (the act of harassing somebody), investigate (to try to get more information about something and understand it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
