Jaipur: Two men were arrested in Jaipur for allegedly molesting a girl after promising her a role in a television show, police said on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old girl hailing from Gujarat came in contact with the two accused Sunny Mandawara and Shyam Sharma through social networking site Facebook over a month ago.

They called her for audition to Jaipur and promised to introduce her in their upcoming religious serial.

"She was working with them since August 19. During the training session, the accused used to molest her. They also demanded Rs 10,000 when she opposed," investigation officer Puran Singh said.

They were arrested after the girl lodged an FIR under sections 354 (for outraging modesty of woman) and 384 (extortion) of IPC, he added.
