A 20-year-old youth was arrested in Lucknow on Friday for allegedly stalking, assaulting, and molesting a woman when she was returning home after giving tuition classes on Wednesday. The complainant, who is also 20 years old, sustained some injuries in the attack but is stable, police said.
Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADCP East) Syed Ali Abbas said, “The incident happened at 7 pm on Wednesday. The girl said that she was returning after giving tuition classes in her neighbourhood when someone approached her on a motorcycle and asked for her phone number. The girl realised that it was the same person who had been stalking her for some days. When she confronted him, the youth attacked her before fleeing from the spot. The girl was sent to hospital after she reached home.”
“The arrested youth will be sent to judicial custody. We have booked him in a case along with two unidentified people based on the complainant’s statement that she saw two men standing nearby when the accused stopped her, but they fled once he attacked her. We are trying to ascertain if the two had any role in the incident. She was hit with a sharp object but the injuries were not very serious. She is likely to be discharged by Saturday,” said the ADCP.
The case was registered under Sections 147 (rioting), 307 (attempt to murder), 354-B (assault or use of criminal force to woman with intent to disrobe), 323 (voluntarily causing hurt), 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.
