CUTTACK:  Kissan Nagar police on Saturday arrested a man for raising the modesty of a 25-year-old female home guard. The accused has been identified as Pradipta Das alias Gaura (45) of Sompur. A video clip featuring the incident had gone viral on social media for the last few days.

Acting on the direction, a case was registered under various sections of IPC and IT Act and Gaura was arrested, said Kissan Nagar IIC Prabhas Sahu.
