Bengaluru, Feb 8: A 23-year-old man from Andhra Pradesh has been arrested for sexually assaulting his former college mate in Koramangala, Southeast Bengaluru. His friend has been arrested for molesting the woman’s friend. 

The accused are Garakipati Ajay Venkat Sai, 23, from West Godavari, and Aditya Abhiraj, 26, from Muzaffarpur, Bihar. 

Police said Ajay had known the woman for four years as they studied at a university in Punjab. Ajay studied agricultural sciences while the woman studied business management.

She is currently pursuing her master’s in Bengaluru. Her friend, also 23 years old, works for a private company in the city. She was allegedly molested by Aditya, who is an MTech student and Ajay’s friend. 

On February 5, Ajay called his college friend when she was shopping on Commercial Street with the second victim.

He said he was in Bengaluru and would go back after a day or two. He suggested that they meet one last time. She agreed. 

Ajay sent her the location of Aditya’s flat in Koramangala and invited her over. Both women reached the apartment building around 11.45 pm and partied for the next two hours. 

Before they finished the drinks, Ajay played music and danced with the victim. During this time, he stripped and groped her. Aditya kissed and groped the woman’s friend. 

When the women raised objections, the men booked them an auto-rickshaw around 5 am and sent them home. 

The women filed complaints at the Viveknagar police station on February 6. Police arrested both Ajay and Aditya. A court has remanded them in judicial custody.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday announced that former prime ministers PV Narasimha Rao and Chaudhary Charan Singh as well as agriculture scientist MS Swaminathan will be honoured with the Bharat Ratna, India's highest civilian award. 

The Centre had earlier announced the Bharat Ratna for Bharatiya Janata Party veteran Lal Krishna Advani and former Bihar chief minister Karpoori Thakur.

“Delighted to share that our former Prime Minister, Shri PV Narasimha Rao Garu, will be honoured with the Bharat Ratna. As a distinguished scholar and statesman, Narasimha Rao Garu served India extensively in various capacities. He is equally remembered for the work he did as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Union Minister, and as a Member of Parliament and Legislative Assembly for many years. His visionary leadership was instrumental in making India economically advanced, laying a solid foundation for the country's prosperity and growth,” Modi said on social media X (formally Twitter).

“Narasimha Rao Garu’s tenure as Prime Minister was marked by significant measures that opened India to global markets, fostering a new era of economic development. Furthermore, his contributions to India's foreign policy, language and education sectors underscore his multifaceted legacy as a leader who not only steered India through critical transformations but also enriched its cultural and intellectual heritage,” the prime minister added.

Modi said the Bharat Ratna to Chaudhary Charan Singh dedicated to his incomparable contribution to the country.

This honor is dedicated to his incomparable contribution to the country. He had dedicated his entire life to the rights and welfare of farmers. Be it the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh or the home minister of the country and even as an MLA, he always gave impetus to nation building. He also stood firm against the Emergency. His dedication to our farmer brothers and sisters and his commitment to democracy during the Emergency is inspiring to the entire nation,” Modi posted on X in Hindi.

On MS Swaminathan, Modi said he made monumental contributions to the country in agriculture and farmers’ welfare.

“It is a matter of immense joy that the Government of India is conferring the Bharat Ratna on Dr. MS Swaminathan Ji, in recognition of his monumental contributions to our nation in agriculture and farmers’ welfare. He played a pivotal role in helping India achieve self-reliance in agriculture during challenging times and made outstanding efforts towards modernizing Indian agriculture. We also recognise his invaluable work as an innovator and mentor and encouraging learning and research among several students,” Modi wrote.
