The Union Minister further appealed to educational institutions to provide self-defense training to girls and women.
“Self-defence training should be given to all girls and women in educational institutions so that they can protect themselves. The girl and her mother had no self-defense training and fought purely with faith in themselves,” he said.
Recalling the incident, Babi Minaj, who fought the armed robbers alongside her mother, said, “I was sleeping when the incident happened. I heard my mom’s voice and immediately got up. I was shocked. Me and my mom caught a robber and beat him. I immediately called 100. The police immediately reached the spot within 15 minutes. They caught another robber within a few hours.”
Minaj’s father, Navaratan Jane, appreciated the valour exhibited by his wife and daughter and said, “I was not in the house when the incident happened. I was shocked after learning about the incident. My wife and daughter are safe and they did a good job defending themselves.”
A CCTV video of the incident showed the mother-daughter duo fighting off the robbers despite them being armed.
Earlier on Friday, Hyderabad Police arrested the two armed robbers, both from Uttar Pradesh
