Ktaka man held for abusing burqa-clad woman for travelling with friend of different faith

Bengaluru: Karnataka Police have arrested a man for abusing a muslim woman for travelling on a bike with her friend belonging to another faith, said officials on Monday.

The incident took place on Saturday at a public road and the video of the same was taken by local people.

The accused, identified as Jakir Ahmad, a resident of Bangarapet in Kolar district, had waylaid the bike and created a ruckus in the public place. He objected and questioned the woman for travelling with the non-muslim youth and asked her to remove her burqa.
