A policeman, who allegedly tried to misbehave with a young woman when she was boarding a bus here, has been arrested.
Police said the accused C P Suresh, attached to the Alappuzha CB-CID, was arrested last night at the Vytilla Mobility Hub.

A crowd gathered and beat him and handed him over to police. The woman is working as an engineer in a company here and is the daughter of a Retired Superintendent of Police of Alappuzha.
