Mumbai: A 36-year-old man was arrested by city police for molesting a British woman in Oshiwara area on Monday evening.
The shameful incident happened when the 26-year-old victim was taking an auto after coming out of a mall.
"The 26-year-old victim, along with her two friends, had just boarded an auto rickshaw near Shreeji Hotel this evening (when) Gupta touched her inappropriately," said Nasir Pathan, senior inspector at the Oshiwara police station.
The British national and her friends raised an alarm, which alerted the constables posted near the mall.
Gupta, a resident of Mira Road area, was brought to Oshiwara police station and arrested under IPC Section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty), police said.
The victim has been staying in Mumbai for the last one year and works as an extra dancer in Bollywood films.
