Vashi police arrested a 31-year-old man for allegedly sexually harassing a 32-year-old his aunt for the past six months.

Police said that the accused (name withheld on request) had visited his aunt's house in December and then he had sexually assaulted and threatened dire consequences of her children if she revealed it.
