A young woman on New Year’s day in Bangalore was molested. The horrifying incident came to light on Tuesday night when a resident of the area gave the police video footage captured by a CCTV camera he had installed at his house.
The city police have arrested four people, including a graduation student, who allegedly molested a woman in east Bengaluru’s Kammanahalli+ on January 1.
Police said the accused were arrested after analysis of CCTV footage from at least 4 cameras, other than the one that recorded the incident that night. The cops also questioned some suspects before arresting the four.
Praveen Sood, city police commissioner identified the main accused as Ayyappa, a delivery boy and a student of ITI. The other three arrested are Leno, a helper in private firm, Somashekar alias Chinni, a driver and Sudesh, a delivery boy. Police are also on the lookout for two more people.
Akshay Kumar has reacted sharply to the ghastly molestation of women in Bengaluru on New Year’s eve. He shared a video on Twitter, a generic address to everyone in the wake of the immense umbrage after the incident got reported.
“The Bangalore incident makes me feel we are evolving backwards, from humans to animals, rather beasts because even animals are better! Truly shameful, (sic)” he tweeted.

Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar called it “gender terrorism”.
“This is not molestation. It’s gender terrorism. empowered by the misogynistic mentality of powers-that-be. Wake up,” he tweeted.
