On January 5, the woman was standing in front of her house with her minor daughter. Parvez, 34, who passed on a bike allegedly made some obscene gestures and flashed his private parts. The woman raised an alarm and passersby rushed to her rescue. Parvez fled from the spot. However, the woman was able to note down the vehicle number of the accused.
