A daily wage labourer was arrested on Saturday for allegedly molesting a three-and-a-half-year old girl after luring her with a piece of chocolate on Friday at Hennur.
Vikas Bharman (26), a native of West Bengal, spotted the girl when she had gone out to play near the Prakruthi Apartment complex where her father worked as a security guard. According to police, he attempted to molest the girl on Friday when her mother had gone to work as a domestic help. When her mother returned in the evening and saw Bharman lift the child up and attempt to kiss her, she became suspicious.

Following the complaint, the Hennur police arrested Bharman and sent the girl for medical examination.
