The Marine Drive police on Saturday night arrested a 48-year-old businessman for allegedly molesting a woman at a nightclub at Churchgate.
The police said the woman was with her husband when she was molested by the accused. “The 34-year-old woman was going into the washroom when she caught the accused, Bhavin Parekh, watching her. When she walked out, he touched her inappropriately,” said Rajendra Chavan, assistant commissioner of police, Colaba division.
The woman and her husband approached the Marine Drive police who registered a case under Indian Penal Code (IPC) section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty). “The accused has been arrested and has been remanded in police custody for two days,” said Chavan.
