Van driver, cleaner sexually assaulted the girl for 3 hours
Bengaluru: In an incident strikingly similar to the Delhi gangrape case, a 22-year-old BPO employee was raped for over three hours by a driver and a cleaner of a Tempo Traveller on Saturday night. The survivor who boarded the vehicle around 10 pm was taken to an isolated place and was sexually assaulted. She was dropped back at the same spot where she was picked up from, around 1 am on Sunday.
The survivor, who hails from North India (unconfirmed reports said that she is from Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh), had come to the city just a few months ago and was working at a BPO in Madiwala. DCP (South-East) Rohini Katoch told Deccan Chronicle that the survivor, after finishing work in the evening, had gone out with her female colleagues. “Around 10 pm, she was waiting at the Bommanahalli Junction to catch a vehicle to reach her paying guest accommodation. Meanwhile, a Tempo Traveller stopped by and she boarded it. As there were no other passengers in the vehicle, her friend warned her not to get into the vehicle, but she went ahead.”
