"I am very happy that being soo young. She came out with so much of dare to speak out and put it out on social media. I am glad she took that step because it needs a lot of courage to speak, to come out and take a stand like that. More power to her! I feel its us, we females who need fight back, so a man think again and again before molesting anyone[sic]."
"It's sad to read that how even kids are facing such cases that too at a public place. I just hope she gets justice. It is good that at least she has raised her voice. She deserves to get justice. We need to fight for ourselves to bring a change. Girls are never weak [sic]."
"It deeply saddens me learning about the incident. She is a kid. This is just really sad. I think this reflects a poor mindset and we only can fight back and bring a change [sic]."
