J&K minister's son arrested for eve teasing

July 09, 2004 22:02 IST

Jammu and Kashmir Social Welfare Minister Mula Ram's son was on Friday arrested for allegedly teasing a girl in Janipur locality in Jammu, police sources said.

Jatinder was arrested after an Std XII girl complained to the police that a man driving an official vehicle tried to force her into the vehicle with the help of another person.

However, she resisted and managed to reach the Janipur police post. Police stopped the vehicle, which had followed her, and took the driver and his friend into custody.

Police subsequently found that Mula Ram's son was driving the vehicle officially allotted to the minister.

A case was registered against Jatinder under the Indian Penal Code.
