PAMPORE: Three persons were arrested on charges of molesting a college student at Pampore on Sunday.
Pampore Station House Officer Manzoor Ahmad Beigh told Kashmir Reader that the student filed a complaint with the police, accusing the three students of Government Degree College, Pampore, of molesting her at Tulbagh, Kadlabal when she was returning home from the college.
Beigh said the police have filed a case FIR No 219/2016 against the three under sections 354 (punishable with imprisonment up to three years), 294 and 34 at police station Pampore.
“All the three boys have been arrested and sent to Central Jail, Srinagar,” Beigh said.
A college official told Kashmir Reader the student had come to the college to submit some forms and the trio had molested her when she was returning home.
“The girl first came to the college and reported the issue to a lady teacher who accompanied her to the police station to file the complaint,” she said.
The college situated at a forlorn place outside the town periphery is lacking proper road and accessibility.
