Woman fights back molestation in Kerala

“The incident happened on the evening of October 18 near YMCA road. We have identified the accused and he has been arrested. The man, a painter by profession, was earlier involved in a couple of cases including stalking and indecent behaviour,” said a senior police officer from north Kerala.

The Kerala police on Sunday arrested a man from Kozhikkode after a video of him trying to stalk and molest a woman went viral.

The region is known for better law and order statistics and being women-friendly but the latest incident has sent shockwaves across the state.

The incident surfaced a day after a 16-year-old girl was attacked on a busy street in Mumbai in full public view for reportedly asking the man to “talk softly”.
