Molested in Mumbai!!!
Seven people were detained by police from Sion on Thursday in connection with the molestation of two women on New Year's Day in Mumbai.
A mob of 70-80 men had reportedly torn up the clothes of two women, molested and groped them outside a 5-star hotel in Juhu on Tuesday.
However, no police complaint has been filed by the victims. Senior criminal lawyer Majid Memom has said that victims need to record statement for action to be taken against the accused. Majid Memom added that, “Nailing the criminals is difficult but not impossible.”
“Accused may go scot-free, if complaint is not registered,” he said
The incident had taken place at around 0145 hrs (local time) on Tuesday when the women, along with their male friends, were heading towards Juhu beach from a hotel in the suburbs.
