Several stalkers hit a youth with iron rods as he protested stalking of his cousin in the capital's Shewrapara area yesterday.

Ali Imam Rakib, 20, son of National Human Rights Commission's Women Affairs Secretary Sharmin Jaman, was taking his cousin, a medical student, to his house for a family gathering.

Then two local youths used indecent words and made an unwanted advance towards Rakib's cousin.

“They were tugging my niece's dupatta,” she said, adding, as Rakib protested, a scuffle ensued, paving a way for her rescue.

After a while, around five youths, including one of the two, attacked Rakib with iron rods when he went out again to buy soft drinks, said Sharmin. As his right leg was broken, Rakib was being treated at the orthopaedic hospital, Nitor.
