Two persons have been arrested by city police in separate incidents of molestation with minor girls reported from Hanumanganj and Piplani areas respectively.
The first case, a 10-year-old girl in Hanumanganj area, had gone to purchase biryani from the nearby shop of accused, but the accused tried to molest her. He first inappropriately touched her and later, tried to grab her after which she came home crying.

When her mother asked her about the reason for crying, she narrated her ordeal and identified the accused as Naveen Gupta (20). The incident took place on Saturday evening and the team of police, acting swiftly, arrested the accused in a span of four hours. The arrested accused Naveen hails from Raisen district and presently, lives in Navjeevan Colony and runs a biryani kiosk at Ibrahimganj.

Meanwhile, in another incident, a 67-year-old man was arrested by police for harassing a minor girl, who he had molested in the past as well but she had then kept mum and it was when the accused repeated the act, she informed her family members.

The accused had earlier harassed her and then lured her by offering eatables to keep mum. When he realized that she will not reveal anything to anyone, he again tried to harass her, but this time, she mustered courage and informed her parents, who later approached Piplani police after which a case was registered.

Police in this case also had worked very fast to arrest the accused who was later identified as Rammurti Chouhan.
