The Oshiwara police have arrested two persons for allegedly molesting a 20-year-old woman in Anand Nagar area Wednesday night. The police said the woman, who worked as a domestic help in the locality, claimed to have been “touched inappropriately” by the two.

“The complainant had gone to fill water at a chawl in Anand Nagar where the two accused reside. The incident took place there,” said an officer.

The police took the accused, aged 18 and 37, to Andheri court Thursday, seeking their custody, but both were granted bail. “They will be called for investigation,” said the officer.
