A 28-year-old man working as a quality controller for a garment house was arrested on charges of sexual harassment and outraging the modesty of a woman colleague in Bangalore on Tuesday, police said.

The man had proposed to 20-year-old Sunita, working as a tailor in the garment firm, who rejected his proposal and informed him that she was married. But he continued to harass her, police said.

He also tried to hold her hand and she subsequently complained to her husband, sources said.

Her husband and relatives barged into the garment firm and thrashed the man and handed him over to police, they added.
