Woman claims man pulled at her hands and clothes

Bengaluru, Jan 10, 2017, DHNS 1:19 IST
A 23-year-old analyst at a multinational company has alleged that she was molested by a man in Channapatna, 60 km west of Bengaluru, on Saturday. But police say there is more to it than meets the eyes.

The woman, a native of Channapatna, approached Home Minister G Parameshwara on Monday, saying the Kengeri police had refused to register her complaint.

The minister’s office directed the additional commissioner of police (west) to look into the matter. She was subsequently referred to the office of DCP (west) where a formal written complaint was taken from her. She was taken to Channapatna for a spot inspection on Monday evening. The complaint was forwarded to the Channapatna Town police station, DCP (West) M N Anucheth told DH.

The woman lives as a paying guest in Kengeri. Her father is a Group ‘D’ employee at the Karnataka State Police Training School , Channapatna. She said she was in Channapatna on Saturday to visit her parents. In the evening, she and her mother went to a restaurant. Around 7 pm, Chethan, a man known to her, accosted her, pulling at her hands and clothes. The woman claimed that he tried to kill her mother when she intervened.

A preliminary enquiry has found contradictions in her complaint. She didn’t approach the Kengeri police station to make a complaint. Chethan’s father, Shankar, was a first-division assistant (FDA) clerk at the KSPTS. Both the families know each other but have serious disagreements. Shankar was transferred to the Armed Police Training School, Yelahanka, following an enquiry that was initiated on the basis of a complaint by the woman’s father, a police source said.
