The teen is appearing for the SSC examination externally this year
Khadki police have arrested a 28-year-old youth from Bopodi formolesting a 17-year-old girl on the pretext of sharing a questionpaper of the SSC examination. The incident allegedly took place near the Chhajed petrol pump area on January 10.
The accused has been identified as Ravi Bhimrao Manjrekar, a resident of Naik chawl. The girl’s mother has lodged a complaint. Her daughter and Manjrekar are acquaintances. The teenager is appearing for the SSC examination externally this year, police said.
Sub-inspector Rupali Kulthe, who is investigating the case, said, “The girl has alleged in her complaint that Ravi intercepted her on Friday (Jan 10) at around 7.30 pm near the Chhajed petrol pump. He forcibly pushed her into a car and molested her. After that he left her near a gurdwara and fled.”
However, Ravi has a different version. “According to the accused, he was not present at the location on Friday. He has also claimed that he has proof in support of his claims. We are verifying his assertions,” said PSI Kulthe.
