More than 90 people suspected of being behind the stripping of several women in city streets have been arrested in an operation launched by police.

The individuals were arrested after massive protests were held on Monday calling for arrest and prosecution of men who stripped naked three women claiming they are indecently dressed.

The 90 are  expected in court this morning to face several charges. Police say it is difficult for them to sustain the sexual offenses charges they had been linked to hence the move to charge them with touting.

Police say there is increased reports from women of being harassed by men over claims they are indecently dressed. Those arrested will appear in Makadara and Milimani courts.
