RAIPUR: Standing tall on International Women’s Dayyouths were seen actively participating for the women cause in the state capital.

Over 45 law students of Hidayatullah National Law University, holding banners of Soni Sori, conducted a flash mob of 10 minutes at a city mall here.

On March 8, over one billion people across the world raised voice on Facebook for justice for Soni Sori, a tribal school teacher in Chhattisgarh, who was arrested in 2011 suspecting her to be Maoist.

She had alleged torture and sexual assault by the state police while serving imprisonment. “The convener Guneet Kaur, a student, initiated the step and gathered few students together to fight for justice for Soni Sori.

Slowly we came together in large numbers,” said Paridhi Tulsyan, a law student who participated in the event.

In another event, Balikotsav was conducted by a youth’s group called Aashayen during which more than 1,000 girl students were bestowed with school bags and stationary items. These girls belonged to ‘Bal Shramik’ schools meant for educating children who were in to child labour.

Girls from about 50 schools who participated in the event came out with broad smiles on their faces holding bags and gifts. “They had undergone free health check-ups and were provided free medicines if required. A dance competition was organized was also organized,” said Yash Tuteja, who heads the group.

There are 89 youths who run this group and work for society doing charitable activities, helping educate girl child and working for needy children. Many such events marked the day.
