“I had said we would bring culprits to book, am happy to say that within 48 hours of registration of case we have succeeded in arresting people, said Police Commissioner MN Reddi. “The individuals have confessed. It boils down to eve-teasing, they found women without men’s company and harassed them,” he said.
