Jamshedpur: Three school girls jumped from a running bus to escape harassment from men on board in the Sakchi area on Saturday, leaving one injured.
Senior Superintendent of Police Anoop T Mathew said the three girls, students of the same school, boarded the bus at Sakchi to go home when the men started teasing them.
The girls complained to the bus driver and the conductor and asked them to stop the bus, but their pleas were ignored as the teasers were the driver's friends, the SSP said.
The girls then jumped from the running bus and one of them was injured, Mathew said.
Deputy Superintendent of Police Animesh Naithany said local people took the injured girl to MGM Hospital, where she was admitted.
Two of the men and the driver were later arrested, Mathew said, adding the bus was seized.
It was not the usual bus in which they generally travel from Sakchi to Mango, the police informed.
Mumbai Police has highlighted the importance of wearing face masks with the help of puzzles.
At a refugee camp in Minawao, in Cameroon's Far North region, the girls took up football, forming a team with whatever equipment came to hand.
