Days after a group of drunken men allegedly barged into the all-women Gargi College in Delhi during a college fest and harassed students, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal demanded the "harshest possible" punishment for the culprits.
In a tweet, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said, "Misbehavior with our daughters at Gargi College is extremely unfortunate. This cannot be tolerated at all. The culprits should be given harshest punishment. It should be ensured that the children studying in our colleges are safe."

In the meantime, the Delhi police has taken suo moto congnisance and started investigation in the case. On the other hand, the National Commission for Women (NCW) has taken note of the serious charges made by the students of all-women Gargi College. The NCW has also sent its representatives to Gargi College to probe into the matter further. The issue rocked Lok Sabha as well.
Scores of students of the all-women Gargi College on Monday held a protest against the alleged molestation of students by a group of men who had gatecrashed a cultural festival. A student, in an Instagram post, said: “The college fest was a traumatic experience. I was guarded by two male friends at the fest. But unfortunately lost them in the sea of men at the fest. In merely those 10 minutes, I was groped thrice by a group of men and when I realised what had happened, they laughed in my face.”
Another student shared on the Instagram page that two women students had panic attacks due to "harassment" they faced. A first-year student claimed that a group of "five middle aged, drunk men cornered her and " tried to molest her" and there were men inside the crowd who were smoking weed.
Requesting anonymity, a student said, “The students’ union will be taking up the matter with the college administration on Monday. During the fest, the police and bouncers were present and were informed that there was overcrowding but they did not do anything to manage the crowd.”
