Police have arrested two persons on the charge of molesting two girls who attended classes at a police training academy at Nalasopara.


According to the police, the arrest was made on Wednesday based on a complaint by the girls.


"The accused, Samadhan Gawade, runs a police training academy at Nalasopara. The two victims were undergoing training at the institute," the official of Nalasopara police station said.
