The police booked a person for allegedly molesting a 11-year-old girl on Sunday. The accused was identified as Gurmail Singh, a resident of Boharian Kalan in the Mandi Ahemadgarh area.

The police said the girl's father complained that Sunday evening the accused dragged the victim inside his house, while she was returning after buying some grocery from a village shop. He then tried to molest her, but she resisted and raised the alarm. Following her screams, neighbours came to her rescue. The police said Gurmail managed to flee the spot.

A case under Section 354 (assault or criminal force on a woman with the intent to outrage her modesty) of the IPC was registered against the accused. The girl returned to her parents after a complete medical check-up.
