Indian doctor arrested in the US
New York: An Indian doctor, Vijayakumar Krishnappa (28) was arrested on charges of sexual molestation by the city police.
A 16-year-old teenager alleged that Krishnappa, who was sitting next to her seat on the United Airlines flight bound to New Jersey, touched her inappropriately many times on July 23. She also said that she changed her seat after explaining the problem to the flight crew. Her family lodged a complaint after that.
American investigative agency FBI registered a case against Krishnappa. The Newark Federal Records stated that Krishnappa was arrested for sexually harassing a minor girl.
Though he was released after furnishing a personal bond, he was kept under electronic surveillance, the records stated. Meanwhile, Krishnappa’s counsel refused the allegations.
