A 25-year-old youth was arrested on Tuesday for alleged harassment of a minor girl. According to police sources, A. Pradeep, a native of Alappuzha in Kerala, was working at a sweet shop at Vadavalli. He had professed his love to a 17-year-old girl working at the same shop. However, the girl had distanced herself from Pradeep after finding out that he was already married. But Pradeep had allegedly threatened her with photos of both of them. Frustrated, the girl attempted suicide and was admitted to Coimbatore Medical College Hospital where she was said to be out of danger.
