The Uttar Pradesh Police has successfully arrested four prime accused in the shocking Rampur molestation case, while a massive hunt is on to nab the remaining absconding perpetrators. 

While three men were arrested on Sunday night, the fourth was arrested on Monday. 

"All the four prime accused have been arrested. Till yesterday night, the police had arrested three. The search is on. Our four teams are out in search of the others accused," said Rampur Superintendent of Police (SP) Vipin Tanda.

The social media was set on fire, after a video of two women being molested by a group of 12-14 men in broad daylight in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur surfaced. 

Proving the sheer fearlessness of the perpetrators, the boys filmed the entire development and posted it on social media.

Besides manhandling and molesting the girls, the boys were laughing and making jokes the whole time, while the distraught girls kept on begging to be spared.

Surprisingly, it was not much long ago when Yogi-Adityanath Government has launched 'Anti-Romeo' squads to check on eve-teasing in public areas, to ensure the safety of girls in the state.

Meanwhile, Samajwadi Party (SP) leader Azam Khan drew outrage after he suggested that to avoid such crimes against them, women should sit at home and remain protected. 

"There is nothing astonishing in the fact that incidents of murders, loot. Rapes are being reported under this government. After the Bulandshahr incident men should try and keep their women and ladies of the house indoor as much as possible. And women should also avoid going to suspicious or lone places," he said.
