A young woman is molested, robbed and then violently hurled to the ground by a scooter-riding pervert and his thieving pal.
The victim is walking alone at around 2.30am in a poorly-lit side street in the east of the city when she is rounded on by the two brutes.
She tries to evade one of the thugs after he hops off the bike but he grabs her and holds the woman tightly, forcefully kissing her and fondling her body.
It is understood that the woman was just 50 metres away from her front door when she was snared by the evil duo.
The man molesting her, bundles the woman towards the scooter, where the second man is sitting, before the pair rob her of her bag and she is violently hurled to the ground.
After snatching her valuables, the young men ride off away from the scene of the crime .
One of the woman’s friends has spoken out to talk about the ‘constant molestation’ that women have to face in the area.
The pal said: “I did not want to remain silent after seeing what happened on our street.
“I came to know about the incident when the woman came to my house with her friends on Monday, saying that she wanted to view my CCTV footage as she was groped by two youths nearby.
“What I saw in the video left me disturbed. If residential areas, as well as the main cities where they are molested, are unsafe for women, where are they supposed to go?”
The woman has since spoken to police who have launched an investigation in a bid to snare the suspects.
Bengaluru, dubbed ‘India’s Silicon Valley’, is said to be the country’s IT and tech capital, but two million people still live in grinding poverty.
The city used to be known as Bangalore.
