New Delhi, Oct 13 (IANS) Four youths were arrested for making sexually coloured remarks against a woman in a road rage incident in the Siri Fort area here, Delhi Police said on Thursday.
Accused Sagar, Rahul, Sagar and Mahender — all in the age group of 30-35 — were arrested on the complaint of the wife of a Senior Delhi Development Authority officer, a senior police officer said.
Police said the couple, residents of Asiad Village in south district, was going to drop their daughter at the Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport in a car at around 11.30 p.m. on Wednesday.
“When they reached the August Kranti Marg near the Siri Fort Auditorium, the accused travelling in a car sideboarded their vehicle. When the couple stopped to check the damage, the accused misbehaved with them,” Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police Nupur Prasad told IANS.
They allegedly made lewd comments at the woman. When a Sub-Inspector intervened, the four misbehaved with him too. Officials from the Hauz Khas police station later arrested the youths who were drunk, Prasad added.
A case under Section 354(A) of the Indian Penal Code (sexual harassment) was registered against them at the Hauz Khas police station.
