It’s a common sight in India to see men peeing against walls and trees in public, a problem that is older than the country’s democracy. And while this phenomenon largely stems from a lack of public toilets, a lack of a culture of sanitation could also be a problem.
Although, with efforts from both individual and the government, people are trying to change their attitudes on the issue– solutions seem far.
In a shocking incident, a 32-year-old e-rickshaw driver was beaten to death allegedly by some men after he objected to them urinating outside the GTB Nagar Metro Station (Delhi).
On Saturday, the victim, Ravinder, saw a couple of men urinating outside the metro station and objected to it, police said.
Angry on being objected, they came back in the evening and thrashed the driver. Ravinder called up his family members who rushed him to a hospital where he succumbed.
A case has been registered and teams have been formed to nab the accused. Police are trying to find CCTV footage from the area to identify the accused.
