A 25-year-old woman was stalked and molested by an unidentified man near her paying guest accommodation in Shivaganga Layout in Mahadevapura recently.

The woman, who works as a textile engineer, has filed a complaint with the Mahadevapura police, alleging that her former roommate, an ex-colleague and their associates are involved in the incident.

The police have booked the accused — Ibrayi, an acquaintance; Arpana Florence, the victim’s ex-roommate; Sunil, the victim’s former colleague; and one more associate — under IPC Sections 354 (sexual harassment) and 354(D) (stalking). The police are yet to arrest the accused.

According to her complaint to the police, on March 13, around 11.09 pm, she was walking home when she realised she was being followed by an unknown man. All of a sudden, he came close, touched her inappropriately, misbehaved and fled the spot. On reaching her PG, she realised it could be the handiwork of Arpana, against whom she had filed a complaint at the Whitefield police station, she said. 

Earlier, the victim had been staying with Arpana at a paying guest accommodation in Brookefields. But she was asked to vacate after she was caught smoking and drinking inside the PG.

Irked over this, she had filed a police complaint against the PG owner and Arpana. The victim suspected that the accused are harassing her to intimidate her.

The Mahadevapura police have taken up a case.
