Calcutta, Aug. 12: The 22-year-old son of a Calcutta police inspector was arrested this evening for allegedly outraging the modesty of a 19-year-old girl in an autorickshaw in Salt Lake.
The youth, who studies in the same college as the girl, was in a relationship with her for six years, her complaint stated. According to the complaint, Shantanu Hazra had gone to the girl’s house in Salt Lake in a friend’s auto.
The girl accompanied them on the auto. Once the three-wheeler reached a secluded spot near Keshtopur, Shantanu allegedly molested her. The girl freed herself and fled.
She stopped a police patrol van and reported the matter.
Shantanu lodged a counter-complaint, alleging that the girl’s family had assaulted him at her home after he “refused” to marry her.
