A 37-year-old bank manager was arrested on Sunday in Indore in Madhya Pradesh for allegedly barging into a women’s hostel and attacking a student in the name of “moral policing” on Friday, police said.
The video of the accused Amarjeet Singh purportedly forcing his way into the hostel, attacking a student and misbehaving with other women, went viral on social media.
He is working as the manager of a private bank at its Rau branch.
“Singh barged into a girls’ hostel on Friday night and beat up a student. He also used abusive language against other students,” said Bhanwarkua police station in-charge Sanjay Shukla.
Singh had accused the girls of the hostel of spreading obscenity by meeting boys in his area.
