22-Year-Old Girl Abducted, Molested in Bengaluru


Bengaluru: In visuals captured on CCTV, a 22-year-old woman was kidnapped by a man from a road in Bengaluru just outside her home. She reportedly screamed for help but no one responded. The police have asked the woman to file a complaint but say she has not done so yet.

In the visuals, the woman, who is believed to be from Manipur, is seen talking on the phone on the street outside her paying guest accommodation. It was nearly 10 pm on April 23.

A man is seen coming up suddenly, scooping her up and then taking her away. The woman has told a TV channel that the man tried to rape her at a construction site but panicked when her screaming drew the attention of some people and ran away.

The girl did not approach the police but described the incident on a local channel. The police say the CCTV footage is enough for them to act without waiting for a complaint from the woman, but the man has not been found yet.
