Not being the speaker's daughter must be a bitch

So the Lok Sabha speaker Somnath Chatterjee's daughter Anushila was travelling by train when a couple of goons asked her to make space for them to sit. She had a reservation so she asked them to fuck off. They began to harass her. And then, being the Speaker's daughter, she called up her dad, who called up the municipal corporation authorities who called up the police who came calling along with the chairman of the corporation. And then the police detained the goons, who pleaded their case to the police by saying, get this, they had harassed her because they had no idea of knowing that she was the speaker's daughter.

You know, I really feel sorry for all Indian women who do not happen to be the Lok Sabha speaker's daughter.

Oh, and they were let go with just a warning, by the way. I guess their excuse must have sounded pretty logical to the authorities.
