Srinagar: A Jammu and Kashmir Minister`s
nephew has been arrested on the charges of eve-teasing in
Sopore area of Baramulla district.

Two girls had yesterday lodged a complaint against Gowhar
Habib, the nephew of Minister of State for Roads and Buildings
Javed Ahmad Dar, alleging that he had misbehaved with them,
police said.

The allegations by the girls, who are sisters, led to
local residents holding protest against Gowhar, demanding his
immediate arrest.

Gowhar has been arrested and an FIR under section 294 (eve
teasing) of the RPC has been registered against him.

This is the second incident in the past one week where a
J&K minister`s relative has been arrested for violating law.

On Saturday, son of Tourism Minister Nawang Rigzin Jora
was arrested along with his friend for allegedly thrashing
a shopkeeper in Leh town of frontier region of Ladakh.
