At least 24 witnesses said the youths of a "specific majority community" in "pass lewd/taunting remarks" against the females of a "specific minority community" as per the findings. Due to this, females of the specific minority community in avoided going outside frequently.

"Some of the displaced persons also verified that it was one of the reasons for their migration from town," the said quoting the team's findings.
