Police also have recovered two swords, knives and mobile phones with obscene pictures from the accused.

According to a complaint filed by the two victims - a Muslim boy and a Hindu girl, studying in a private medical college at Deralakatte – they were not only kidnapped and blackmailed by the accused on Thursday night. The complaint says that a gang of men surrounded the duo when they were engaged in a conversation after parking their car near a restaurant at Deralakatte. The gang took the couple to an isolated place, where they were forced to engage in sexual acts.

According to the complaint filed by the victims, they had been to dinner on Thursday night and were engaged in conversation after parking their car near a bar and restaurant at Deralakatte. Meanwhile, they were surrounded by a gang of men, who not only abused the couple, but also forcefully took them to an isolated area where they were forced to engage in sexual act. The accused clicked obscene pictures of the two and demanded huge amount of money from them.

When the students said they did not have that much money on them, the kidnappers took their mobile phones and sent them to fetch the money, failing which they threatened of uploading the obscene pictures and video in internet and to inform the family and college principal. The students immediately approached police, who directed them to arrange a meeting with the kidnappers at a spot near Deralakatte under the pretext of paying them off. But none of the accused turned up to take the money.

Based on the information provided by the duo, the police managed to nab eight persons on Saturday.

Briefing media persons about the case, Mangalore City Police Commissioner R Hithendra said that three among the eight accused are rowdysheeters and the main accused is facing 12 other cases including dacoity and murder.

“We succeeded in arresting them on Saturday, even though they had managed to escape after Thursday's crime. We are thoroughly investigating the case,” he said.

Bengaluru, June 29: In a shocking incident, two sisters were stripped and assaulted at their residence in the limits of Sarjapur police station in Bengaluru. It is alleged that the police refused to lodge a complaint for two days, and did so only after public outrage.

The incident took place in Doddabommasandra in Anekal taluk. The complaint was lodged against three persons, Ramakrishna Reddy, Sunil Kumar and Indramma. While the police arrested Ramakrishna Reddy and Sunil Kumar, the third accused is yet to be arrested.

According to the complaint, one of the victims had taken a loan of Rs 1 lakh at an exorbitant 30 per cent interest for the education of her children from Ramakrishna Reddy, a resident of Neriga village near Doddabommasandra.

However, she was asked to repay the entire loan amount at once. The villagers had brokered an agreement that once they sell their land, the victim would repay the loan amount.

Despite this, the accused barged into their residence and assaulted and stripped the victims. They had approached Sarjapur police station in connection with the incident. However, it is alleged that Inspector Raghavendra Imbrapur refused to lodge the complaint.

The inspector had asked the victims to negotiate with the accused for a settlement. Meanwhile, the videos of the assault went viral on social media creating public outrage against the police and the accused.

The cops finally called the victims to the police station and lodged a complaint on Tuesday night.
