    The molester took advantage of the absence of security.

    The journalist recalled her ordeal on Friday. She said, "At first I thought he touched me by mistake but then he groped me again, after that it took me few seconds to gather myself."

    "There was no security personnel around, otherwise I would've caught him there," she said.

    The accused, identified as Akhilesh Kumar, was in an inebriated state, allegedly molested the two women and passed lewd comments, police said.

    Confirming the arrest, Pankaj Singh, DCP Metro, said they had the person's face captured on a CCTV camera and five teams were formed to identify and track him down.

    The Patiala House Court has sent the accused to 14 days judicial custody
