Bengaluru: A day after two drivers were arrested for allegedly raping a 22-year-old BPO employee, a police team took the duo to the isolated stretch in Bellandur where the crime was committed in a bid to recreate the chain of events on that fateful Saturday.
Police said, “The accused Yogesh and Sunil explained that when one of them was sexually assaulting the girl, the other stood guard. Though she shouted and pleaded, she was threatened with metal tools and other articles in the vehicle to remain silent. As she feared for her life, she did not oppose their act.”
“The duo said that initially, they intended to rob the girl of her belongings. But they later decided to rape her thinking that she would not reveal it to anyone to protect her dignity,” a police official said.
“The victim too did not want to file a complaint. But since it was a medico-legal case, the hospital authorities informed us when she was brought there for treatment,” a senior police officer said.
The accused were produced before the 3rd Chief Metropolitan Magistrate on Wednesday who remanded them to 14 days in police custody after medical examination.
Display Boards in Vehicles
The city traffic police have planned to make display boards mandatory for cab services, including Tempo Travellers.
Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) M A Saleem said, “The display boards with driver details may not ensure accountability, but will instill a sense of fear that drivers are under scanner.”
He also said the traffic police are planning to join hands with a few organisations and conduct a few programmes including training women for ferrying women and children.
This will also provide employment for women in BPO and IT sectors and also in schools and colleges. It is still at a discussion stage and we will come out with sound plan,” he said.
