The accused caught on camera while molesting the girls said he had only touched their hand, asked them to leave but never teased them.
Mainpuri (UP): The policeman in Uttar Pradesh's Mainpuri was on Sunday arrested after the video of him, allegedly molesting two sisters, seeking to register a complaint, went viral.
In yet another incident of police personnel bringing shame to the department, a video of a cop allegedly molesting two sisters at the Karhal Gate Police Station has gone viral.

Meanwhile, the accused, gave a different version in his defence, saying that the girls came to him saying a man had insulted them by trying to grab the drawstrings of their pants. To which he replied saying that nobody wore such kind of clothing these days.
"I then told them to go and touched her hand. I did not tease them," Prasad said.
However, after the video went viral, the accused cop was suspended by Superintendent of Police (SP) Rajesh S. The investigation into the incident has been handed over to the city's Circle Officer.
SP Rajesh S assured that no sort of misbehaviour with the complainants would be tolerated.
