president of the Republican Party of India (RPI-Athawale) and

one more person were booked for allegedly molesting and

manhandling a college girl at Bhusawal in the district, police

said on Saturday.

The incident took place on Friday morning, they said.

"The accused, Rohan Raju Suryawanshi, son of Jalgaon

district unit chief of RPI(A), and his friend were going on a

motorcycle when they spotted the girl riding her two-wheeler

near a college in Bamb Colony.

"They waylaid the minor and started arguing with her

over some personal issue. Later, they even abused and slapped

her," sub-inspector Manoj Thakare of Bazarpeth Police Station

The victim then lodged a complaint against the duo, he

said, adding that the accused were at large and a search has

been launched to nab them.

The duo has been booked under IPC section 354 (assault

or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty)

and others, Thakare said.
