Allegations levelled by TV actress Karishma Sharma that she had to face eve-teasing during her recent trip to Dharamsala has Kangra police on the edge. Karishma Sharma, in an interview in Mumbai, said she had gone to Dharamsala to take a break from her hectic schedule.
However, during a trip to a temple, while she was clicking photos with friends, a group of men kept staring at her in a “vulgar” manner. When she approached a local policeman, he allegedly ignored her complaint.
Karishma Sharma is currently doing ‘Comedy Circus’ show on TV.
She further alleged that the group of men also followed her to a shop and then to a monastery. The TV actress claimed that she had to cut short her visit to Dharamsala after just two days due to the eve-teasing incident.
Kangra SP Santosh Patial said the incident of eve-teasing was never reported to police. “However, after her interview in Mumbai we are trying to verify the allegations. As of now, we have no information about her stay in Dharamsala.”
“We are trying to verify when did she came here, where did she stay, when she returned and where exactly the incident of eve-teasing took place. We have CCTV cameras installed at many places in McLeodganj and would try to verify as to who was trying to harass the actress. However, till date we have got no clue about her allegations,” he said.
Sources here said Karishma has said in her interview that there were lakes in Dharamsala. However, there was just one small lake, the Dal Lake in the Naddi area of Dharamsala. The police was trying to verify if the actress stayed in that area.tribune
