When the police made an investigation they were able to co-relate the same incident that happened in April 2017.
During that incident, he had put his hand on a girl’s thigh and when she pushed his hand, he forcibly made her “touch him over the clothing” and at that time the Police weren’t able to recognize the suspect.
On November 21st, the Police observed his clothing and connected it to a similar incident in 2017.
On being asked, he admitted that he was responsible for the incident in 2017 and 2019. He was booked in jail to face charges on sexual abuse for both the incidents.
