The police have arrested a person for allegedly molesting a 23-year-old American tourist. The accused identified as Gopal Krishan, 44, a resident of Hoshiarpur in Punjab, was sitting beside the victim in the bus.

The incident took place on Tuesday when the woman, a resident of California, was travelling from Srinagar to Jammu with another US girl, a police officer said.
