Teenage girl molested, almost stripped in public

In a shocking incident, a group of young men allegedly molested an 18-year-old girl in a broad daylight in the suburban Kandivali here, police said on Wednesday.

Shockingly, the hapless teenager, who was trying to save herself from the bunch of rowdies who almost stripped her, entered a restaurant for help but people there drove her out before she was finally rescued by a police constable on patrol and some passersby, police said.

The incident occurred at around 4:30 PM on Monday near Hindustan Naka, they said.

Three persons identified as Fayyaz Ahmed Khan, Saroj Khan and Naushad Khan were arrested yesterday and booked under section 354 (molestation) of Indian Penal Code.

The victim and her female friend reached Hindustan Naka in an autorickshaw from Bandra. However, while alighting they realised they did not have enough cash to pay the fare. The victim’s friend, whose relative stays nearby, went to their house to borrow some cash while the victim waited in the rickshaw, said police. However, when her friend did not return for quite some time, she wanted to go out and check on her, but the rickshaw driver insisted on paying the fare right then, they said.
