Harishchandra Lahane, the accused, has been living in Nehru Nagar for the last ten years, said police. "On May 10, he went to the common balcony of his building where women were also sitting. He abused them, went back and returned naked," said Vilash Shinde, senior police inspector. The constable was arrested.
He has now been been granted bail and an inter-departmental inquiry will be initiated against him.
The police has registered a case under 354 (A) (making sexually coloured remarks, shall be guilty of the offence of sexual harassment) and 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
