Protestors Urge Convenience Store Boycott

KSAL StaffJuly 30, 2014

An owner’s multiple arrests on sex charges prompted a protest outside a Salina convenience store Wednesday evening.

A large crowd of protestors gathered in front of the Pump Mart convenience store on North 9th Street. Many brought signs, and chanted, urging a boycott of the store.

The owner of the store, 60-year-old Rasikbhai Maganlal Mody, has been arrested multiple times on accusations that he was groping and inappropriately touching female customers.

Most recently Mody was arrested earlier this week, accused of grabbing a 28-year-old woman’s breasts. Prior to that, he was arrested in May for allegedly approaching a 17-year-old female customer from behind, grabbing her buttocks and breasts, and asking her to perform oral sex.

Mody has been convicted of similar crimes in the past. He was convicted of aggravated sexual battery, and sexual battery, in 2005. He is currently a registered offender in Kansas.
