Humorous tweets mock UP’s anti-Romeo squad

LUCKNOW: The ‘anti-Romeo’ squads to check “eve-teasing” started by the newly-elected Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh have come in the line of fire for allegedly harassing and humiliating couples.

The campaign, which was a BJP pre-poll promise, has been formed with special squads to chase ‘Romeos’ “to protect the honour of women” proclaiming that “boys and girls can never be friends”.

Twitter reacted to Romeo-huntersnot let the moment pass without some humour of course.

The newly-formed squads comprising cops from local police stations kept a vigil at markets, malls, schools, colleges, coaching centres, parks and other crowded places to see if women were being harassed.
