Youngsters protest against moral policing offer free hugs

Kolkata, May 2: Youngsters held a demonstration on Wednesday outside the Tollygunj Metro Station in Kolkata against the alleged moral policing incident in a train on Tuesday and offered "free hugs" to people to lodge their protest.

"We are doing nothing ... we are here just to spread love. Love will overpower everything. We have nothing more to say," a demonstrator said.

The protesters were enraged over an incident taking place on Monday late evening when a couple was beaten up for "standing too close" in a Metro train.

"How can anyone hit like this? I have my personal freedom of expression and this is meaningless?" said a young man outside Tollygunge Metro.

The city Metro officials also made it clear that they were against any kind of moral policing.

"It is a peaceful protest. No one has complained about any difficulty due to the protest," said a Kolkata Metro official.
