In another shocker from Bengaluru, a woman was allegedly assaulted near her home early on Friday, even as the IT city was coming to terms with the horrific incidents of mass molestation on New Year’s Eve that triggered public outrage. Deepika Padukone‘s mom Ujjala Padukone was asked about the mishap, she said:

It is quite upsetting because such things can happen to anyone in any part of the country. It makes you wonder what kind of people you are creating.

During her conversation Padukone’s Mom also added:

As a mother, I’m paranoid of my daughters driving or stepping out alone in vulnerable areas. It is so contradictory when in their respective careers, my husband and I keep telling them to reach out to the skies.

Several celebrities like Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan have come forward to speak about the issue.
