Bengaluru: Burqa clad Woman molested, injuries on lips, tongue

Just days after  a CCTV footage of the New Year shame from Bengaluru shocked the Nation, yet another such incident was caught on cam and brought more shame to the city.

In the first incident many blamed the victims for their dressing and western culture.

But the same city has witnessed yet another incident of molestation, where a burqa clad woman was allegedly assaulted near her home early on Friday.


The woman, who was walking towards a bus stop, was attacked by an unidentified man around 6.30am, near Arabic College bus stop. He grabbed her and bit her, but fled away once she alarmed people around for help.

The incident comes within 24 hours of police commissioner Praveen Sood announcing the arrest of four men for allegedly molesting a woman in Kammanahalli on January 1, and warning `potential stalkers’ of serious consequences.

The victim of Friday morning attack, who works for a private company, was on her way to her workplace in Koramangala, when the incident took place. The culprit is said to have been stalking her, and followed her before attacking her.

The survivor suffered minor injuries, including a cut on her tongue, as she resisted the molester. She was admitted to Ambedkar Medical College and discharged later, after which she filed a complaint with K G Halli police.

Police booked a case under IPC sections 509 (word, gesture or act intended to insult the modesty of a woman) and 354 (outraging the modesty of the woman). “Based on the complaint registered by the woman, we have taken up a case and senior officers are personally monitoring the progress of the investigation,” a senior officer told to reporters.
