Four men were arrested on Thursday night on charges of sexual harassment and attempting to misbehave with a woman.

According to police, Periyasami (28) from Devakottai, Subramani (24), a resident of Tondiarpet, Manoj Kumar (21) from Manali and Karthikeyan (30) from Sivagangai were travelling in a cab on Taylor’s Road, Kilpauk. On the way, they harassed a woman who was on a motorcycle with her husband. Ramesh (28) and his wife Deepa (23), residents of Ambattur, were returning home around 10.30 p.m.

When Ramesh tried to intervene, the men, who were in an inebriated condition, snatched Deepa’s dupatta and continued to harass her. Bystanders then called the police helpline. Kilpauk police arrived and detained the men.
