A madrassa teacher was taken into custody on Monday for allegedly molesting a female student from Africa at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad, police said.

The 21-year-old victim, a national of the Republic of Congo, was allegedly molested by one Abdullah on Sunday night, Banjara Hills police inspector P Murali Krishna said.

"The accused apparently had an argument with the complainant, a student at a local educational institute, over the way she was dressed," the Inspector said based on a complaint lodged by the student on Monday.

Following the complaint, police booked a case under section 354 A (sexual harassment) and 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the IPC, assistant commissioner of police, Banjara Hills (Division) M Ramesh Reddy told PTI.

"Abudullah has been taken into custody and is being interrogated. He will be produced before a court tomorrow (Tuesday)," the ACP said.

Further probe into the case is on.
