Hyderabad: A madrassa teacher was Sunday taken into custody for allegedly molesting a female student from Africa at Banjara Hills here, police said.

 

             

 

The 21-year-old victim, a national of the Republic of Congo, was allegedly molested by one Abdullah last 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 today.

               

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," the ACP said.

               

Further probe into the case is on.
