According to the complaint registered by the girl's family, More and the girl's fathers were friends. On June 5 this year, More gatecrashed her birthday party. He also demanded liquor, the complaint said. When the cake was cut and her friends and relatives smeared it on the girl's face, More, who was standing next to her, allegedly scooped it up with his finger and licked it. He repeated this action several times, unmindful that he was touching her inappropriately, the complaint said.


    The entire incident was recorded on a mobile phone. When the girl's father confronted More, he sought to downplay it. The girl's family told reporters that since the incident, they were trying to get an FIR registered but the police shielded More.

    Based on eye-witness accounts and the video clip of the incident, the police registered a case on Thursday, said Deputy Commissioner of Police Ashok Dudhe. No arrest has been made yet, he said, adding that probe is underway.
