Nagpur: A 52-year old woman was threatened and molested by a so-called journalist in Hudkeshwar area here on Monday. The ‘scribe’ has been booked.

The complainant woman, resident of Hudkeshwar, told police that she was standing at gallery of her house around 6.30 pm on Monday. At the same time the accused Subhash Goswami came in front of her house and gestured her in obscene manner. Sometime later, when she was watering Tulsi plant, the accused Subhash abused her in filthy language and told her that he was a journalist and has connections with big leaders and police. The accused further threatened the woman that he can implicate her husband in false cases. Scared of the threatening postures of the accused, the woman registered a case with Hudkeshwar police in this connection.

API S D Mahalle has booked the accused ‘journalist’ under Sections 354(A), 354, 294, 506(B) of the IPC and launched a probe into the matter.
