MJC students develop ‘touch me not’ suit; to deter eve teasers


Hyderabad: Touch me not, exclaim the girls of MJ College of Engineering and Technology. But what if someone does not follow the advice still goes ahead and touches them?

He will get a shock of his life.

Why? Because a team of five girls and boys have developed a suit like device which on touch releases current which has capacity to rattle any person.

The first year students invented a smart jacket called ‘Mimosa Suit’ for women’s safety which they named ‘Touch me not.”

Worried over the increasing number rapes and sexual harassment of girls and women, the students formed a team and began working on the jacket.

Team SSAFAR, Sabiha, Sana, Adnan, Farhan, Arfath, Rehman have participated in Hack Revolution 2020 at MJ college on 20 January.
