Two of the six accused charged in connection with a rape case in Bengaluru got shot in the leg today when they allegedly tried to escape from the crime scene. Reports said four male accused - Sagar, Mohammed Babu Sahik, Ridoy Babo, and Hakil - were brought to the spot for reconstructing the crime scene. Sagar and Ridoy Babo allegedly attacked the police and tried to flee.
Police said cops at the spot fired in self-defense and shot the two accused in the leg to catch them. They then took the accused to a government hospital for treatment. The six accused, including two women, got arrested yesterday after a video of the gang rape and assault went viral on social media in the northeast. The Assam police had released photographs of the five accused.
Later, it was revealed that the crime took place in Bengaluru almost six days ago and all the accused and the victim are of Bangladeshi descent. One of the female accused was also present when the crime was committed. According to the police, the victim who is also a Bangladeshi was brought to India for trafficking. She was also tormented and brutalized because of a financial matter.
"Based on the contents of the video and preliminary investigation, they have registered a case of rape and assault against 6 persons, including 2 women, at Bengaluru's Ramamurthy Nagar police station. They have also deputed a police team to an adjoining state to trace the victim so that she could join the investigation," Kamal Pant, City Police Commissioner of Bengaluru, tweeted.
