New footage showing a woman being sexually assaulted by two men in a residential area in Bengaluru on New Year’s Eve was released to the media. This comes at a time when the state government and its police force are facing immense criticism for their failure to ensure safe and peaceful new year celebrations.
A new footage have been emerged showing a woman being sexually molested by two men in a residential area in Bengaluru on New Year’s night. The video shows how two men on a scooter are seen blocking a woman’s path in the street, getting off and groping her before escaping.
The shocking video has emerged amid a nationwide outcry over several women being allegedly mass molested during public celebration of New Year’s eve in the IT city.
The incident is said to have taken place around 2:30 am on Sunday and was recorded by a camera installed at a house off Kammanahalli 5th Main Road in East Bengaluru.
In the video, the woman is seen getting off an auto-rickshaw and walking towards her home apparently just metres away. Lurking in the shadows on a scooter that is kept running, one of two men leaps at her and forces himself on her.
As the woman resists and slaps him, the man drags her towards his partner and pins her down. All this happens while several people passing by the end of the road stop, seemingly to the woman’s cries, but do not come ahead to help her.
It is only as she continues to fight them off that they finally throw her on the road and run off on the two-wheeler.
The incident was brought to the notice of media outlets and reported to police by the residents of the house whose security camera recorded the incident.
