A few minutes later, he allegedly started to make lewd gestures asking her to come to a nearby place when she refused and later complained to the supervisor about him. She did not know the name of the accused at that time but the supervisor confirmed it to be Rakesh Makadia. She was scared and so, lodged a complaint against the youth,” police said.
