The incident is said to have taken place around 2:30 am on Sunday and was recorded by a camera installed at a house off Kammanahalli 5th Main Road in East Bengaluru. In the video, the woman is seen getting off an auto-rickshaw and walking towards her home apparently just metres away. Lurking in the shadows on a scooter that is kept running, one of two men leaps at her and forces himself on her.
As the woman resists and slaps him, the man drags her towards his partner and pins her down.
It was said the incident was brought to the notice of media outlets and reported to police by the residents of the house whose security camera recorded the incident.
Meanwhile, Commissioner of Police Praveen Sood has promised to take action against the culprits. Banaswadi police have registered a case and are investing.
