“Eve-teasing is a very old thing. It has been going on for ages. One of the reasons behind the increase in incidents of eve-teasing is short dresses and short skirts worn by women. This in turn instigates young men,” Mr Chakraborty told reporters at the Barasat police station where he had gone to inquire regarding an eve-teasing case.
“We should definitely work towards removing this stigma but again women can be a little more conscious about what they are wearing,” Mr Chakraborty said.
