Woman files sexual harassment plaint against two men

A 33-year-old woman has filed a complaint against two men for seeking sexual favours at a BBMP water plant in Ashok Nagar. The Ashok Nagar Police have detained one suspect, Pradeep, and are on the hunt for the other, Krishna. Both suspects are in their 30s.

According to the police, the victim works at the water plant maintained by the BBMP in Ashok Nagar and is married to a man who is physically challenged.

The suspects began harassing the woman in July 2018 and the harassment continued until January.

The duo would use sexual innuendos while interacting with her and recently demanded sexual favours, which the victim refused.

The irked suspects locked the water plant preventing her and her husband from entering the plant. The police said that the duo did small errands at the office.

Krishna and Pradeep have been booked under IPC Sections 354(A) - sexual harassment and 354 (D) - stalking.

“We have detained one of the accused and are questioning him,” a senior police officer said.
