“Of places and men...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

The place is great, nice shops, nice big area in front of the statue of poet Bhanubhakta. But an unfortunate event that happened to us has left a bitter taste in our mouths. We had a school trip to Darjeeling and we had taken European children there and around this place, a policeman and his friend took pictures of the backside of the girls, who protested. They were minors, and they were decently dressed. When we too protested, the policeman named CG (Civil guard?) Mandal who was standing near the clock tower on April 10th around 2pm, threatened us of charging the girls of smoking in a public place (they were not, other people were, but he didn't care). The girls were minors, they were not smoking, they had diplomatic passports, so there was no way he could have arrested them. But we wished to avoid further problems so left the place as he came after us threatening us more. So an ugly face of India we saw that day in Darjeeling. The cop who was supposed to assure protection actually, right in front of our eyes, turned the victims into culprits in order to continue protecting himself and his sick friend.
