A fashion designing student today set examples for other women in Odisha capital as she fought off rogue elements wandering in search of soft targets.
A 22-year-old woman pursuing her degree course at National Institute of Fashion and Technology (NIFT) here encountered two unsocial elements who followed her and tried to snatch her mobile phone.
“Two motorcycle-borne miscreants misbehaved with me and tried to snatch my mobile phone while I was returning from college. They waylaid me near Institute of Minerals and Materials Technology (IMMT), Acharya Vihar in the city and tried to misbehave with me. When I did not respond to them, they tried to snatch my mobile phone. I pounced on one of the miscreants and pulled him down from the bike,” Budhimati Rao, the complainant told in her complaint with Saheed Nagar police station.
However, the duo managed to run away from the spot leaving their two-wheeler behind seeing the passersby rushing to the spot, she added.
