A 22-year-old Indian origin, working for search engine giant Google, has been arrested for allegedly molesting a US woman in a five-star hotel in Delhi on Friday.
The arrested Google techie has been identified as Anmol Singh Kharbanda.
Additional Commissioner of Police B K Singh said, “Kharbanda met 52-year-old woman at the hotel’s bar on January 8. He had offered her drinks and a smoke in his hotel room.”
“The techie in his room groped the woman. She pushed him away and ran out of the room,” said Singh.
Another officer told the media, "The victim informed the police that she had locked herself in her room for the entire night out of fear and shock."
“She did not lodge a complaint the very next day as she had to go to Jaipur,” he added.
Police have registered an FIR under relevant Indian Penal Code (IPC) sections including 354 and 328. The statement was recorded before the City Magistrate under Section 164 of CrPC.
The techie was arrested from his hotel room.
