Two Indian women are harassed – level 2

05-12-2014 07:00

A group of men harassed two Indian women, who are sisters. It all started at a bus stop. The harassment escalated on the bus.

The men began to touch one of the women and made kissing gestures. When the women told the men to stop, they pushed the women. The men then began hitting one of the women. Her sister wanted to help her, but she could not reach her. She took out her belt and began hitting the man. The men then stopped and threw them out of the bus.

The women told the police and now they investigate this incident.

Difficult words: harass (to say and do unpleasant things to somebody and make them feel very uncomfortable), escalate (when a problem gets worse), gesture (the motion of a part of the body by which you want to communicate something).

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