Six arrested for scaring  five women on MG Road

The six men, who allegedly tried to forcefully enter a car with five women sitting inside near a well-known jewellery showroom on M G Road recently, have been arrested by the Cubbon Park police.

The suspects have been identified as Nagesh, a resident of Whitefield and a sales executive at a private firm, Harish, a driver from R T Nagar, Devaraj, a labourer from Whitefield, Kiran, a BA student from Hosur in Tamil Nadu, Satish, a driver, and Subramani, owner of a provision store. They are all aged between 22 and 26, City Police Commissioner M N Reddi said at a press conference on Tuesday.

According to the police, the five women—two of them married—had gone to a restaurant on Lavelle Road for dinner. The husbands of the married women accompanied them. The men then went to get their cars that were parked in a reputed club nearby. The women went to an ice cream parlour, along with a driver, in another car around 11.30 pm.

The police said that the driver parked the car near a jewellery showroom and went to the parlour to buy ice cream. Soon, a gang of six men approached the car and tried to open the door. One of the women locked the door from inside, while another clicked pictures of the men, the police added. The men stood near the car for a short time and went away, said the police. Later, the women lodged a complaint with the Cubbon Park police.

The police gathered details from the women and obtained the footage of CCTV cameras installed near the spot. During the verification of mobile phone calls, the police found that around 200 calls were generated at that time. During the scrutiny, the police tracked one of the numbers that led to the whereabouts of a suspect. Based on his inputs, they arrested the remaining five.

Investigators are interrogating the six men to ascertain why they indulged in such an act and if they were involved in similar offences in the past, Reddi added.
