While on her way to college with three of her friends, a first year student of a suburban college was molested by two boys on a busy street in Bandra East on Friday afternoon.

While the girls were about to cross the road, two boys on a bike approached them and touched the victim inappropriately. Even before she could react, the boys fled from the spot.

According to police, the girl was so shocked that she stopped midway and started crying. After the Kherwadi cops reached the spot, she complained about the incident. Thereafter, a manhunt was launched to nab the accused.

In her complaint to the police, the victim said, "I was on my way to college with friends, when the boys on a Honda bike approached us. The one who molested me was wearing a blue-coloured shirt. Following the incident, they immediately fled from the spot."

Police said that the incident took place around 2.50 pm, a few metres away from the victim's college. The cops are scanning the CCTV cameras in the locality and have also recorded the victim's statement.

An officer from Kherwadi police station said, "On being informed, we immediately reached the spot and started investigating the matter. Initially, we had detained two suspects in the matter, but later they were released, as they were not the actual culprits. We are scanning the CCTV footages of the vicinity to trace the accused."

Speaking to mid-day, senior police inspector Rajendra Patil said, "A case has been registered under section 354 of IPC and relevant sections of the POCSO Act. The accused will be arrested soon."
