Bengaluru: Bringing more shame to Bengaluru, bike-borne miscreants allegedly molested a 21-year-old woman, who was walking home from a gym. The alleged incident took place at HRBR Layout 1st Block in Kalyan Nagar on Wednesday night and the woman has filed a complaint with the Banasawadi police station. Based on the woman’s complaint, the police has registered a case under Section 354 (outraging the modesty of a woman) of the IPC.

The police said the woman, who works in a private company, had returned home in the evening and later gone to the gym near her house. Around 9 pm, she left the gym and was walking towards home when the two men on a bike came to her and allegedly pulled her shirt.

“When she raised an alarm, the miscreants sped away. The next day, she approached the police and filed the complaint. The alleged incident took place on the main road. We have collected footage recorded in various security cameras but none of them have captured the incident. We are investigating the case and are trying to trace the accused,” a police officer said.

The police have also questioned the gym staff. “The incident occurred very close by to the gym. The staff maintained that they were not responsible for the incident, as it took place outside their premises. They also said that the woman had not gone to the gym after the incident,” an official said. ACP (East) Hemant Nimbalkar held a meeting with the staff and discussed various aspects of the investigation.

In a similar incident on Friday, a 25-year-old woman was allegedly molested by two bike borne miscreants. According to the police, the woman, who works in a private firm in Indiranagar, had visited her relatives in HRBR Layout. Around 9 pm, she was waiting for a cab to get home when two men on a bike allegedly pulled her clothes and also dragged her by her hand. As she raised an alarm, they escaped. “The same day she filed a complaint. We are investigating into the case,” the Banasawadi police said.
