Kochi | A senior woman police officer would probe the case of alleged bid by government pleader Dhanesh Mathew Manjooran to molest a woman in the city last week.
Kerala Police chief Loknath Behera today said the investigation into the case has been handed over to Inspector Rural, Radhamani. It is not a very complicated case.
Let the investigation complete, Behera told reporters when asked about the progress in the probe conducted by local police into the case. If there is evidence, charge sheet will be filed, the DGP added.
The government pleader was arrested last week on the charge of allegedly attempting to molest the woman on a city lane. Manjooran was apprehended on July 15 by locals after the woman raised an alarm.
He is currently out on bail. Yesterday, Kerala Union of Working Journalists organised a march protesting against some advocates who allegedly used abusive words against some legal reporters at the Kerala High Court media room here for covering the case.
