The Chandigarh Police on Thursday arrested four youths for allegedly outraging the modesty of a woman at her Sector 32 residence. The accused,Hemant Saini,Mohit Saini,Satpal Singh and Harpreet Singh,were also booked for manhandling a Chandigarh Police head constable at the crime spot.
At 10.30 pm on Thursday,Hemant,who was in a relationship with the victim,allegedly reached her residence in an inebriated state. When she opened the door,Hemant asked her to step out. However,noticing his inebriated state,the victim asked him to leave. Meanwhile,the victims father also came out.
Hemant,however,remained adamant and asked her to marry him. The 25-year-old woman refused the proposal and told him she wanted to end the relationship. Upon this,Hemant (27) called the police. When police reached the spot,Hemant asked the personnel to make the victim give in writing that she did not wish to marry him.
The police then asked Hemant to call his parents. Hemant,instead of calling his brother Mohit,called his friends Satpal and Harpreet. This led to a heated argument between the victim and the accused. Hemant then called more acquaintances. The police asked him to stop making more calls and co-operate. Hemant allegedly refused and head constable Vinay Singh snatched his phone,after which Hemant allegedly bit Singh on the arm.
All four accused were arrested on the basis of a complaint filed by the victims father. While Hemant,Mohit and Satpal are residents of Sector 32,Harpreet resides in Burail.
