Two persons were arrested on Friday for allegedly trying to molest a 20-year-old British national here, police said.
Kristy Goss, hailing from Kent, who is on a tourist visa, alighted at Karanthur near here late last night after she realised that she had boarded a wrong bus en route to Thiruvananthapuram, police said.
As Kristy engaged an auto rickshaw to be dropped at the state-owned bus stand here, the auto driver and his friend reportedly tried to "play mischief" with her, they said.
However, as she began screaming, the duo dropped her near a private bus stand and fled. Some persons, who noticed Kristy weeping at the bus-stand, took her to the police station where a case was registered.
Police identified the vehicle and nabbed the duo this morning, the sources said, adding Kristy was later sent to Thiruvananthapuram.
However, Kirsty was not subjected to any medical examination as she had accused the auto driver and his friend of only "misbehaving" with her, they said.
Kristy had arrived here from Udhagamandalam in Tamil Nadu, last night.
