Auto driver molested two women: Facebook complaint to police

A man has posted a complaint on the Bengaluru police’s Facebook page, accusing an autorickshaw driver of assaulting him and molesting two women near the Central Silk Board junction, south Bengaluru.

The complainant, Mohit Kalra, said he had hailed the auto-rickshaw to reach Madiwala on August 17 around 6.30 pm. “The driver physically attacked and harassed two women travelling with me. He also hurt me badly. He was threatening to kill us. He sexually attacked the girls. He touched the girls repeatedly despite repeated warnings. He was very rude and disrespectful. We got down from the auto-rickshaw and took the help of another auto-rickshaw driver (sic),” he stated in the post on Tuesday.

The jurisdictional Madiwala police took note of the complaint and traced the driver based on the vehicle’s registration number given in the post.

They also tried to contact Kalra by sending him several messages but he is yet to respond. “We can’t take up suo motu cases in such incidents,” the inspector of Madiwala police station told DH. A case would be registered once Kalra responds, he added.
