Bengaluru: A lovelorn employee of a private company was arrested for allegedly stripping and assaulting his woman colleague on a busy road for rejecting his marriage proposal.

The complainant stated that Arun was known for his pervert behaviour in office and he posted derogatory messages and videos in a group that has many women employees of the company.
The complainant said that Arun sent her obscene pictures and videos, and she objected to it and warned him. Arun stopped sending such messages, but allegedly started stalking women employees of the company on his bike and made obscene gestures at them in public.

Angry with Arun’s behaviour, she yelled at him. Arun then started abusing the complainant and her women friends. He later threatened to kidnap her and held her hand. When she resisted, Arun allegedly tore her top in full public view, the complaint stated.
Other employees of the company arrived at the spot and thrashed Arun black and blue before handing him over to the Chandra Layout police. A case was registered and investigations are on....
