The Quint: ‘Anti-Romeo Squads’ Detain ‘Suspicious Men’ in Lucknow & Meerut

Loitering aimlessly outside schools, colleges and other public arenas, especially those frequented by young girls may cost young men dearly in Uttar Pradesh. In a directive from the recently-formed Uttar Pradesh Government, Police have set up 11 ‘anti-romeo’ squads in Lucknow area to monitor ‘suspicious young men’ and thereby check rising cases of eve-teasing in the state. Under the latest guidelines, these squads will be empowered to quiz men and even detain them if “they fail to provide to reason their presence in the area.”
