CUDDALORE: A youth in Tamil Nadu’s Cuddalore district was arrested on charges of kissing a minor girl, taking photos of the act on his mobile phone and threatening her that he would release them online if she refused to accept his love proposal.
The 17-year-old girl is presently pursuing first year in a private college in Chennai.
Sethiyathope all-woman police station inspector Meena said the minor girl was staying in her grandmother’s house and pursuing Class XII in a government school in a village near Chidambaram a year ago.
R Ramki, 24, of the same village was harassing her asking her to love him. The girl declined his proposals.
On October 10 last year, the youth barged into her grandmother’s house when she was alone and misbehaved with her. He kissed her and took photos of the act. The girl did not reveal the incident to her relatives.
After completing Class XII, the girl moved to Chennai. She is presently staying in her aunt’s house and pursuing a degree course in a private college.
