Despite taking all remedial measures, taxi and auto drivers try their hand in raping and molesting the passengers travelling in their vehicles. This has become a bad precedence in past and it continues to haunt young women travelling by this mode. This time a 11 year old became the victim and she was forced to jump out of the cab to save her modesty. Parents must listen to child when they appraise their problems. If they find the going tough please try to help them and not abuse in any way and try all the ways and means to console and cajole them with the help of counsellor if needed. Have a control over the teenaged girls and try to clear the doubts on sex and sexuality in an age appropriate manner instead of just brushing away their queries. It is time to address the problems with a broader outlook.
