Immediately after the people objected to his behaviour and beat him up, the man tried to flee. But the people caught hold of him, asked the victim to hit him with her sandal, after which he was handed over to the police.
The lady who alighted from a bus to work in a shop nearby, is a resident of Kolnad village, and happens to be a Christian. Moidin (58) from Kuddupadavu followed her closely and misbehaved with her, it is learnt.
After the man was arrested, his close relatives tried to convince the police to release him, by claiming that he happens to be mentally retarded. However, the policemen booked him under section 354 of Indian Penal Code, and produced in court, it is gathered.
