Guards Rape Woman in Bengaluru


Bengaluru: A 30-year-old engineering graduate from Tumakuru was raped by two security guards in the Cubbon Park late on Wednesday night.

The victim had come to enquire about coaching at the Karnataka State Lawn Tennis Association (KSLTA), located on the park premises. She was told to return on Thursday since the office was closed.

When she did not leave, the Cubbon Park police were intimated and she was escorted out by constables, Police Commissioner N.S. Meghrik said. The woman, however, is believed to have returned around 10 p.m. and was spotted by the guards.

“As the woman was struggling to find her way out, the two guards promised to help her, but raped her at a secluded place near Siddalingaiah Circle. She managed to get out of the park later,” sources said.

She was taken to the Cubbon Park police station and later to the Bowring Hospital where sexual assault was confirmed. The two accused were arrested on Thursday morning.
