According to the report, a 30-year-old woman in Begur wanted to get water purifier-related work and raised a service request to the company. After multiple reminders, the company sent a technician to the house of the woman.

The woman who was alone in the house opened the door for the technician and explained him the issue with the water purifier. After learning that there was nobody in the house, he asked her to turn down the main switch to reinstall the water purifier.

He then started touching her inappropriately and groped her while she was working in the kitchen. The woman then pushed him out of the kitchen, locked herself in and dialled a friend nearby for help. By the time the friend arrived, he started attacking her from outside the kitchen. However, they both confronted him, and he fled after being slightly injured.

However, the woman reached out to the police and filed a case against the accused. The police got the technician's details from the company, but when they called, the accused did not respond. On Wednesday, he was traced, and an investigation is ongoing.
