On August 24, heritage city Mysuru hit national headlines as six accused from Tamil Nadu allegedly attempted to rob and then gangraped an MBA student.
Due to the uproar, the accused who are daily wage workers had escaped to Tamil Nadu.
The police based on clues like bus ticket and mobile details from the tower traced the accused within 84 hours of the incident. Later the accused were taken for spot inspection by police.
Meanwhile, the survivor was taken to Mumbai by her family and her male friend was admitted to the hospital for injuries.
The incident also gave a chance to the opposition as Home Minister Araga Jnanendra made an irresponsible statement. The victim was shamed and he said why she should go out at odd hours and also said that with that issue Congress will rape him.
Due to this statement, an uproar was witnessed and the statement was withdrawn.
