Ludhiana, September 12

An auto-rickshaw driver attempted to molest a woman in Jagraon but was caught by passers-by. He has been identified as Chanmkor Singh of Galib Khurd village near Jagraon.

The complainant, a resident of Galib Kalan, told the police that last evening, she was waiting for an auto-rickshaw to reach home. An auto driver asked her to board his vehicle as he was heading towards Galib Kalan village.

Instead of turning towards the village, the driver stopped the auto on the roadside. “The auto driver seemed to be drunk and he attempted to disrobe and molest me. When I raised the alarm, people from my village, including Avtar, Dharampreet and Rajinder, who were passing by, saved me from the driver,” added the woman.

The driver tried to flee but was caught and thrashed by the passers-by. — TNS
