Police are on the lookout for a petty shopowner here with political links in connection with a sexual harassment case.

Police here today said Balasekhar, a DMDK functionary, had a petty shop at Aditchanpudur in Shanbagaramapudur in this district.

Balasekhar used to harass and make innuendoes against girls who visited his shop.

Under these circumstances, a few days ago, Balasekhar harassed a Class 12 student and pulled her hand and used sexual innuendo and harassed her.

He allegedly threatened to kill her if she reported this to anybody.

The girl, later in the night, consumed sleeping pills.

However, timely action by the victim's mother who admitted the girl to primary health centre, saved the girl. She was later shifted to the Asaripallem Medical College and Hospital for further treatment.

The police registered a case and are looking for Balasekhar who was absconding.
