Chandigarh - Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram on Friday strongly condemned the brutal molestation of a girl in Guwahati.
"Molestation of women anywhere in India is condemnable. We will find out from Assam Chief Minister what action the state government has been taken," Chidambaram told the media after attending the North Zone Chief Ministers meeting here.
A girl was molested on Monday as she was returning home from a party at a bar located in Guwahati's Post Office area.
The incident came to light after an amateur video of the incident was uploaded on YouTube. The video shows the mob, consisting of around 20 men, beating the girl before stripping her.
The shameful act continued for 30 minutes till police arrived and rescued the girl, and handed her over to her parents.
Police later arrested around four persons following widespread expressions of outrage over the incident.
