DU Students protest against throwing semen filled balloons at girls

A large number of students and teachers of Delhi’s prestigious Jesus and Mary College on Thursday protested outside Delhi Police Headquarters a day after semen-filled balloons were allegedly thrown at some female students of the Lady Shri Ram College and other Delhi University affiliated colleges.

Carrying posters and placards, the protesters urged the authorities to provide safety to women students in and outside their colleges.

”Let’s prevent them (female students) from becoming the target of semen-filled balloons. Let’s raise our voice in anger,” the posters read.

Today’s protest was called after some students of LSR alleged that some miscreants have been harassing them in the name of the festival of Holi by throwing semen-filled balloons at them, instead of water and colors.

The incident came to light when one of the students of the South Delhi college reported that a balloon “filled with liquid” was thrown on her and “it dried white” on her black leggings. Scroll reported that the girl was later told by her friend that the balloon was filled not with water but with semen.

Following this, the women development cell of the college held a meeting with at least 40 students. Authorities discovered during the meeting that the experience of the student was not an isolated one.

According to the report in Scroll, at least three students reported that they were hit by balloons which were filled with what they suspect to be semen. Though no police complaint was filed in this regard, the students union of the college and authorities informed the police.

The students have also been provided with a mobile number by police authorities and they have been urged to file a complaint in this regard.
