Manama: An Indian supermarket worker in Bahrain, accused of molesting a 10-year-old girl, was released from custody on Monday, media report said.

The 25-year-old Indian was arrested on May 4 on charges of groping the Bahraini girl as she tried to take a trolley in the supermarket in Muharraq city in April, reported the Gulf Daily News.

The accused denied the allegation claiming that the girl had made up the story. The defence lawyer said that according to the accused, the Bahraini girl had approached him and asked him for a trolley.

He told her he could not give her the trolley because he was holding it for another customer.

“The girl insisted on taking the trolley and tried to force it out of his hands. When she was not given the trolley, the girl complained to her mother leading to his arrest,” said the accused. (IANS)

The “two-wheeler mode” in Google Maps that first arrived in India last December has been extended to Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

To be first available for Android users, the motorcycle-specific navigation will help bikers find the most suitable routes in these countries, The Verge reported late on Thursday.

“The goal is for drivers to read through the directions first to help memorise the path before they start navigating, especially since these countries tend to contain roads and alleyways without actual names,” the report said, quoting Krish Vitaldevara, Google Maps’ Head of Product.

“The India-first feature is the new “two-wheeler mode” in Google Maps. India is the largest two-wheeler market in the world, and the millions of motorcycle and scooter riders have different navigation needs than drivers of automobiles,” Caesar Sengupta, Vice President, Next Billion Users Team at Google, had said during the launch.
