According to the police, the complainant had gone to buy clothes with her mother in a clothing store in Shakkar Bazaar area on the Saturday where the incident took place. While making her try on a dress, the accused touched her inappropriately. Earlier, she felt it might be a mistake and told her mother about it, but then she discussed it with her friend and they went to the store again to check if the accused was a repeat offender.
