Gang outrages woman's modesty


The gang, with most of its members inebriated, descended on the village and began throwing stones on houses and damaged the parked vehicles. A 60-year-old woman who came out and objected the mindless act was abducted. She was thrown out from a speeding vehicle, unclothed, near outer ring road.

“Some workers saw me in that state and took to heels mistaking me for a mental wreck. I begged them and managed to secure a bedsheet to cover myself and reached home before sunrise,” the victim told Deccan Herald. She added that such incidents have become routine in the area owing to enmity between two groups in the area.

The police have arrested Manjunath, Chandru, Muniraja, Sreenivasa and Govinda in connection with the incident and search is on for their accomplices. They have been booked for  kidnapping, atrocity and outraging the modesty of a woman.

Sections of youths from two different communities have been at loggerheads in the area. Dinesh and Prasanna, close pals, fell apart over a girl and youths from neighbouring villages took sides in the feud. Eventually, a panchayat was called to settle the issue. Soma and his five associates murdered both Dinesh and Prasanna in front of the gathering. The assailants are now lodged in central jail. Meanwhile, many complaints and counter complaints were booked against the communities.
