Kolkata man tries to rape mom’s colleague, arrested

A 23-year-old man from Kolkata is accused of attempting to rape a colleague of his mother at a luxury hotel in the city. 

The suspect, identified by the RMC Yard police as Mukherjee, had arrived in Bengaluru last week to accompany her mother to a seminar on Peter England Concepts at Taj Yeshwantpur.

He is an engineering student and works part-time at a firm in Kolkata. The victim is 39 years old and works with the mother of the accused.

Around 11.45 pm on February 8, a drunk Mukherjee went into the woman's room asking for water. After she obliged him, he held her hands, pushed her to the bed and forced himself on her. He then dragged her into the bathroom and forced her to smoke a cigarette. The woman pleaded with him to let go of her, saying she's like his mother but he didn't relent and tried to strip her. 

When the woman raised an alarm, Mukherjee assaulted her and warned her against disclosing the matter. He finally kissed her before sneaking out of the room. The woman later confided in Mukherjee's mother and filed a police complaint. Mukherjee was arrested on Sunday. A court has sent him to jail.
