Sexual harassment: youth, friend held

The police have arrested a youth for sexually assaulting a girl and also his friend for compelling the girl for sexual favours.

Police said N. Suresh Kumar (22) of Vadakkankulam under Panagudi police station limits, met a girl, a graduate from Kanniyakumari district, on Facebook. He sexually assaulted her after taking her to a lodge at nearby Kaavalkinaru and also took photographs of the girl in a comprising position. He later shared the photos with his friend Hariharasudhan.

As Hariharasudhan too tried to sexually assault the girl with the help of Suresh, she resisted the attempt and managed to escape. After Suresh and Hariharasudhan demanded Rs. 20,000 from her for not uploading the photos on Internet, she filed a complaint with Panagudi police, who arrested the duo on Thursday evening.

Further investigations are on.
