On Saturday, a 28-year-old professional hairdresser was arrested for allegedly molesting a 25-year-old client at a salon in Chedda Nagar, Chembur.
According to the Hindustan Times, the accused has been identified as Kundan Thakur. Kundan was employed with the salon. The incident took place on Saturday evening when Kundan was asked to attend the 25-year-old woman. The woman has alleged that during the hair spa session, Kundan touched her inappropriately.
Later the woman warned Kundan about the same, but he kept on repeating the act. After some time, the woman realised that Kundan was molesting her under the pretext of the spa services. The woman then approached the Tilak Nagar police and filed a complaint. Acting on the complaint the police arrested Kundan from the salon. The police arrested the accused under section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the IPC. The police did a background check which showed that Kundan had no other cases against him. He was later produced in court which remanded him to seven-day police custody.
