A 22-year-old MBA student who went on a ride with her classmate was allegedly gang-raped by six men on a secluded stretch at the Chamundi foothills on Tuesday night. Chief minister Basavaraj Bommai, who is in New Delhi, said he has directed DGP Praveen Sood to ensure that the culprits are arrested at the earliest. The girl is presently admitted in a hospital and an FIR has been lodged in the case at Alanahally Police Station.
The girl, in her early 20s, had gone to the foothills of the Chamundi Hills, a prominent pilgrim and tourist destination, with her classmate.
Four others who were in the vicinity then accosted them and tried to attack the student. When her friend objected, he was beaten with stones and overpowered. The girl was taken to a desolate location and raped by the four men who were in an intoxicated state.
Her friend reached out to the police and lodged a complaint first while the victim later gave her statement. The police said she has been admitted to a private hospital while her family members are coming from Maharashtra. She was out of danger and was able to give leads on the culprits.
