A 29-year-old security guard has been arrested in Madhya Pradesh as he allegedly molested women in hostels and houses. Police said that the security guard was from Indore.

The security guard’s name is Srikant Chaturvedi. Apparently, he has been allegedly involved in many such incidents in the Vijay Nagar area in the last 15 days.

Srikant used to follow women whom he wanted to target up to their houses or hostels. He would sneak inside in at night and cut their undergarments using a scissor or a blade when they are asleep. He used to flee when his victim raised alarm.

In fact, police obtained a year-old CCTV grab in which the accused enters a women’s hostel. He is also in another similar footage. The accused appears to be sexually deviant.

He is facing charges under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act and sections 458 (house-trespass in night after preparation for hurt, assault), 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) and other sections of the Indian Penal Code.
