According to the police, the incident was reported on August 26. The woman has a pet kitten which had run into the grocery shop adjacent to her rented accommodation. She lost track of the kitten, despite chasing it till the entrance of the shop. The owner of the shop later told her that he had last seen the kitten enter the store room of his shop.
Inside the <g data-gr-id="35">store room</g>, the woman saw a labourer taking <g data-gr-id="42"><g data-gr-id="43">rest</g></g> but it was too dark to look for the kitten. So she left to fetch a flashlight.
When she returned, the labourer allegedly advanced towards the woman allegedly in an indecent manner.
The woman rushed out of the room and reported the matter at the police booth in the locality, the official added.
