“A woman in her twenties, an employee with a call centre, was gang-raped on the night of October 3 by two persons in South-East Bengaluru,” the city’s Police Commissioner NS Megharikh said.

The woman, who is from Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh, left office on Saturday night and was waiting for an autorickshaw at around 10 pm when a private mini-bus with only a driver and a cleaner stopped and offered to take her to the city’s south-east, where she stayed with her sister.

The woman boarded the vehicle even though a friend who was with her advised her against it, the NDTV reports.

The police say for over three hours, the two men drove around deserted places of the Madivala area and raped the woman at knife-point.

The men allegedly dropped her near a temple.

The woman called her sister and friends, who came to the spot and took her to the St. John’s Hospital nearby.

She left hospital on Monday, said the police which is questioning three people in connection with the case.

The woman had started working recently at the call centre.
