Hailing from Ernakulam, Sreelekshmi Satheesh -an Educational Consultant- is a very happy woman these days. On Wednesday, when she shared the reason on social media, her post went viral, making other women even happier.
Sreelakshmi had got an online pervert to save face by donating Rs 25,000 to a charity home in the city. She shared a photograph of the donation receipt (with the name of the donor blurred) to substantiate her claim.
In her post, she said that for the past few days, she was completely nonplussed by numerous calls and messages from unknown numbers, asking her rates for sexual favours.
It took her some time to figure out that a local youth wing leader of a particular political party had posted her phone number in a WhatsApp group with the comment â€śsuper itemâ€ť tagged to it.
â€śI was deluged by calls from party youth wing leaders. That is how I zeroed in on his identity. I asked them to ensure his immediate dismissal from the party. I have achieved success through education. I have neither surrendered my dignity to anyone, nor have I allowed anyone to dent my prideâ€ť she wrote.
She took screenshots of his WhatsApp post and was mulling over going to the police to resolve the issue.
â€śThat was when his father came to meet me in person, and offered profuse apologies. He literally begged me to not file a complaint with the police in this regard. Seeing his father in such agony was the only reason why I was ready for a compromise. I felt like slapping his son, but then thought what is the useâ€¦I then came up with this solution.â€ť
She asked the father to donate Rs 25,000 to any charity organisation to make amends for his sonâ€™s gross misdeed: â€śI asked them to show me the receipt for the same. I also warned them that I would not hesitate to approach the police, if this is not done.â€ť
Going by further updates to her post, though the said amount was reportedly paid to Sree Chitra Charity Home, the culprit is yet to be suspended from the party.
