Airtel staffer detained for 'molesting' techie

An Airtel executive has been reportedly detained by the R T Nagar police on the charge of molesting a software engineer at her flat in Ganganagar on Sunday afternoon.

The suspect Prabhakar (25) too is a resident of Ganganagar. He molested the techie when he had gone to her house on an official work, the police said.

According to the police, the woman had requested the Airtel staff to provide internet connection to her house and Prabhakar was entrusted with the work.

Prabhakar had sent a text message to the victim asking her if he could visit her house around 10 pm on Sunday. However, she had told him to come around afternoon, said sources.

Prabhakar went to her house in the afternoon. After completing the work, he intentionally left his cellphone at her house and went away. He came back after some time and told the woman that he had left his cellphone inside the room where he provided the internet connection, said sources.

The victim let him in. He went inside the room and she followed him. He collected his mobile phone and came out and asked her for a glass of drinking water. After having water, he suddenly locked the door from inside, hugged her and dragged her inside the room where he touched her inappropriately.

The victim resisted his moves, but he kept molesting her. As she raised an alarm, he ran outside and escaped, added the sources.

Though she informed the police, she was hesitant to lodge a formal complaint. Based on her friends’ advice, she lodged a complaint and shared Prabhakar’s phone number with the police.

The police sent a message to Prabhakar through a person asking him to fix an internet problem at a particular house. The police detained Prabhakar when he came there. He was taken to the RT Nagar police station and interrogated.

Raghupathi, inspector R T Nagar police station, told DH: “Prabhakar works with Airtel and he has been booked for molesting the techie. The police are yet to arrest him.”
