BANGALORE: A 34-year-old tailor is on the run after he allegedly molested two minor girls at his shop in Thalaghattapura on the outskirts of the city. The accused has been identified as Puttachari, a resident of Somanahalli, who runs Sudha Ladies Tailoring in the neighbourhood.

He misbehaved with the girls when they went to his shop to deliver flowers in the morning. He used to buy garlands for puja, police said.

On Sunday, the girls, who study at a government school, refused to go to Puttachari’s shop. Their parents asked them the reason. They then complained that over the past week, Puttachari had been pulling them inside his shop and touching them inappropriately.

The furious parents and some others went to his shop on Sunday evening, and questioned him. They tried to thrash him, but he fled. The parents then complained to the police.
