Chandigarh: Biker who patted UK diplomat a serial molester, nabbed | Chandigarh News


CHANDIGARH: Police on Friday arrested a biker who allegedly molested a UK diplomat in Sector 10 while she was taking a walk two days ago, claiming he had sexually harassed an Indian Revenue Services (IRS) officer in Sector 26 on June 4 too.
Ketan Bansal, SP (city), said the accused is Vishwas, a resident of Nayagaon. The 21-year-old works as a cook at a restaurant in Manimajra. He was nabbed from the housing board light point.
Police said after registering an FIR (first information report) on the statement of the diplomat, a team was constituted to crack the case. Scanning of CCTV cameras in Sector 10 and other localities helped police identify the accused. The complainant too identified the accused. Police recovered his motorcycle.
Cops said the accused during interrogation told them he was going to his workplace from his house via Sector 10 at 6am on October 6, when he saw the woman walking alone and molested her. He said he sped away when the diplomat ran after him.
Cops said the accused had sexually harassed an IRS officer while she was cycling with her friends in the early hours of June 4.
The IRS officer has fallen off and received minor injuries. On her complaint, Sector 26 police had registered a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
The IRS officer identified Vishwas as her molester, police said. Police said they were verifying his involvement in two more sexual harassment cases.
The accused is a Class X pass-out. He lives with parents and brothers. He would be produced before a local court on Saturday.
