A 24-year-old Mongolian woman has filed a complaint that she was molested by an official at the customs office here Thursday, police said.

The woman - a resident of Vasant Vihar area of south - told police in her complaint that she had gone to the customs office in central to get information about three parcels sent by her to her home country in October 2013.

"As all parcels sent abroad are cleared by customs officials, she had gone to the office to know their current status," a police officer said.

The customs official molested her when she inquired about her parcels, the woman said in her complaint.

A case has been registered and a hunt is on for the official who was on the run after the incident.

Police did not reveal the name of the official as they are yet to confirm if the allegation is valid or not.
