Savad Sha, is a name that has gained popularity in Kerala during the last week, albeit for the wrong reasons. He was arrested for misbehaving with a girl in a bus.
The incident came to light after the girl, Nanditha, took to social media to talk about it and also posted a video of the incident that she herself shot. From the images, it appears that he is associated with the Muslim League of Kerala in some manner.
So, this is what Nanditha narrates in her video: She was on her way from Thrissur to Kochi when Savad boarded the bus and sat on a reserved women’s seat next to Nanditha. Soon, the man started touching her inappropriately.
Apparently, he also started touching himself inappropriately after unzipping his pants. At this point, she got up, confronted the man, and recorded the incident with her mobile phone camera.
After being confronted, he tried to escape when the bus stopped in between. However, the driver and the conductor chased and caught him, handing him over to the police. One thing that stands out in the entire video is the silence of the co-passengers though.
The conductor deserves applause for taking immediate action. There was just one question he asked the girl: “Do you have a complaint?” to which she responded with a yes. The other passengers must ask themselves if they would have kept quiet if this was their sister.
It’s unbelievable that guys like this still exist in our society, walking among us as if they were one of us. How do we, as a society, deal with people like this? To those passengers sitting quiet: You guys need to take a good look at yourself in the mirror. Shame!
