The Uttar Pradesh police on Tuesday arrested four more accused in the shocking Rampur molestation case, taking the number of nabbed perpetrators to nine.

Out of the four arrested, one has been identified as a 16-year-old minor. The other three have been identified as Fazil, Bhoora, Qasim.

A massive hunt is underway to nab the remaining five absconding culprits.

Reacting to the case, Uttar Pradesh ADG Law and Order Aditya Mishra said on Monday the incident was ‘sad’, adding that the police would ensure that such misconduct is not repeated in future.

“This is very serious and sad incident. We will try that this kind of incident should not get repeated in future,” Mishra told ANI.

While three men were arrested on Sunday night, the fourth was nabbed yesterday.

The video of the two women being molested by a group of men in broad daylight in Uttar Pradesh’s Rampur was being circulated on social media. Around 12 to 14 boys can be seen in the video, molesting the women, even while they pleaded to let them go. They filmed the entire incident and posted it on social media.
