A Sector 24 resident has been arrested for misbehaving with a woman constable in a local bus here on Monday.
Sector 11 SHO Gurmukh Singh said the woman constable, member of the squad of women police personnel set up by the UT police to check eve-teasing, complained to the police that the accused, identified as Rajinder, continued misbehaving with her till she got down from the bus she had boarded in Sector 17.
The SHO said the constable, a resident of Manimajra who was going to the PGI, was in civil dress.
The woman constable alleged that Rajinder continued to touch her on one pretext or the other. The other woman constable accompanying her prepared a video of the accused, and after the bus reached the PGI, she confronted Rajinder. This was followed by a heated argument. The constable informed the Sector 11 police station about the incident and also produced the video.
Rajinder has been arrested under sections 354 (assault) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC. The police said Rajinder (29) was a married man without a job.
About two months ago, a Bathinda resident was booked for passing remarks and making obscene gestures at a woman cop outside the Aroma eating joint.
