The Police today received a complaint of molestation by a female journalist who alleged being "groped and pinched" by some unidentified persons during a Youth protest held at here.

"We have received a complaint from the reporter. We are in the process of registering a case of molestation and launched investigation. No one has been named by the complainant," said a senior police officer.

The journalist, working with an English channel, took to Twitter to narrate the incident.

"I am a journalist. I got groped during a @IYC rally where speeches were made against the govt's failure to maintain law&order. #YesAllWomen (sic)," she tweeted.
