NCIB Says Creeps Staring At Women For 14 Seconds Can Be Jailed, Tweeple Wonder Whose Counting!

November 30, 2022 | by Pragya Dubey

Uncomfortable stares on the road are a common occurrence for women. We can never understand a man’s obsession with constantly staring at women and making them conscious. However, a recent tweet by the National Crime Investigation Bureau has informed all of us that staring at a woman or girl for 14 seconds is a punishable offence that can land a man in jail. Although Twitterati has all sorts of funny reactions to this, at least it is a helpful piece of information for all women.

National Crime Investigation Bureau took to its official social media account to tweet this information on how staring at a woman is considered a punishable offence. The tweet highlights that any man can be jailed for staring at a woman or girl for more than 14 seconds. It is also considered to be a serious crime that comes under molestation. According to IPC 294 and 509, staring is punishable and leads a man to jail.

The tweet further informs that any person who is caught whistling, passing filthy comments, or singing songs at a woman can be punished for up to three years. The accused can also be punished to serve one year of jail term or will have to pay a penalty. In some cases, it can be both. 

The Twitterati flooded the comment section with various funny comments and memes. Many users questioned the practicality of proving this crime. They expressed doubts about how would someone be judged if it is 14 seconds exactly or not because the tweet does not provide any clarification on that.

 

Many Twitter users also made hilarious comments under the tweet.
