What’s more shocking is that the pervert is a retired teacher. He is identified as Ashwath Narayan, a retired school teacher from Basaveshwaranagara.
After the video went viral, Bengaluru police took note of the incident and registered an FIR against him under Section 354 (assault of criminal force to a woman with intent to outrage her modesty). As per the police, Ashwath has been absconding and is not arrested yet.
The person who recorded the whole incident, Yeshwanth Jayaprakash said that he didn’t just sexually abuse a single woman but molested 4-5 women before the was finally recorded.
“My sister noticed the man and told me that he was acting suspicious and had touched a woman. Initially, I thought it must have happened by mistake. But 10 to 15 minutes later, I saw the man move near a group of women and touch them. I understood that something was wrong,” Yeshwanth said.
To be sure about the suspicion, he followed the elderly man and found out that he had been groping and molesting women on purpose. Then he recorded the incident and reported it to the Mall’s security personnel.
