The police officials said that they were getting complaints of eve-teasing and harassment with girls for the past days. After a meeting with the administrative officials of various educational institutes in the area, the “Operation Romeo” was organized to crack down on such incidents.

The policemen were in civil dresses. They took into custody all youths who were found passing remarks or harassing girls outside educational institutes. The police teams encouraged the nearby shopkeepers to share information about such anti-social elements with the police, so that the operation can be carried out on a regular basis.
