A 33-year-old man was on Sunday arrested on the charge of sexually harassing a woman in a deserted lane in Kozhikode in Kerala last week after a video of the incident rocketed around the Internet. Police said Jamsher was arrested following a search based on the visuals of the incident that occurred on the afternoon of October 18.

He had been booked under IPC sections pertaining to “sexual harassment, assault or criminal force to woman with intent to disrobe and stalking”, police said.

The footage from a CCTV camera installed at a residence in the area showed a man accosting the woman and assaulting her in the narrow lane. After a while, the man was seen fleeing the spot and the victim was seen chasing him.

After the video was circulated on social media, police registered a case and arrested Jamsher after a probe. The woman was sent for medical examination, they added.

      There should be fast track conviction for all such cases including those against prominent personalities to discourage others from doing the same

              This is a minor incident compared to many victim men in India who are being accused of false rape allegation daily in the country where there are no laws to protect the victim men. These criminal women are freely roaming around on the street with women power to target another victim men. Men are not safe in the lawless country. Women are lawless in the Indian, but there are thousands of new and old laws to punish men. Disgusting Modi-Sonia.

                what do you mean ". These criminal women are freely roaming around on the street with women power to target another victim men. " You mean to say women have no right to freely roam on the streets. If they do so, does it mean only to target men? It is because of people like you that things are so bad and confusion prevails. I suggest you a remedy for this: All men should wear burkhas without showing even an inch of their body and sit at home less they become victims to rowdy roaming women. What da ya say?
