On an intelligence-based operation, the secret police for women’s rights have arrested red-handed an unnamed woman who was helping her husband find his pair of socks on Monday morning.
The accused, whose name was withheld for security reasons and to protect her from the backlash of social media gunners and scathing hashtags, was reportedly on parole for presenting a cup of tea to her husband three months ago. She was released from custody two months ago, pending trial, when she landed in troubles this Monday again.
“At this point, we can only share that the accused, resident of a middle class neighbourhood was taken into custody for offering help to her husband to find his socks,” said a press release issued by the office of the secret police of women’s rights.
“Earlier, she remained in custody and was counseled on right conduct when she was arrested red-handed for serving tea, yes, a hot tea cup, to her husband, three months ago.”
The man, allegedly seeking the help of his wife to find socks from his messy drawers, is stated to be on the run as he dodged the police at the time of the raid.
A warning has been issued to all stores to be vigilant on those buying pairs of socks, and public assistance has been sought to trace the socks-less man in his early 30s.
Meanwhile, a group of Men-for-Women’s Rights has shown concerns on the increasing incidents of men seeking women’s help in meal cooking and service and searching their lost or misplaced items like socks or shoes.
“In the last three months, 190 incidents were reported where women committed the offense of helping men. This shows where we are heading to,” said visibly perturbed Mr Women Right at a press conference. He was accompanied by several other activists.
