S.R. Ramesh, Bengaluru Rural Additional Superintendent of Police informed, “We have arrested accused Ravi, 26, with bus cleaner Manjunath, 23, on a complaint by the victim that she was raped by the driver when she was alone in the bus on Thursday night.”
The young woman boarded the bus at Sulibele to go to work at a nursing home in Hoskote, 30 km from the city centre when the incident took place.
“The accused asked the cleaner to drive the bus while he raped her and dumped her later on the roadside at Nagagondanahalli. When she narrated the incident to doctors at a private hospital, police were called to take her complaint,” Ramesh said.
As soon as this hideous incident was reported in Kannada, police swung into action and arrested the two people and seized the bus immediately. The bus was registered in the neighbouring Andhra Pradesh.
Prior to this, recently, a 23-year-old woman was gang raped by a driver and a cleaner in a moving van in the city’s southeast suburb.
