Bangalore Protest
Bangalore, July 20: Protest in Bangalore intensified as accused in Bangalore rape case have not been arrested yet. However, city police detained eight staff members of the school where a 6-year-old student was raped.

According to sources, cops interrogated at least 90 people in connection with the case. Bangalore Police Commissioner Raghavendra Auradkar was quoted as saying, "The CCTVs in place are very old and the footage cannot be downloaded. We have to gather information from various sources. There was a lot of delay in occurrence and reporting of the case. Give us a day or two and we will bring the culprit to book."

A day after huge protest in the tech city, now many people expressed their rage on social media. Parents of many students have begun speaking out about how in the past too, schools have tried to hush up rape cases.

According to a report, there has been a strong response to at least two online petitions that calls on the chief minister to frame a time bound road map to ensure safety for women in the city.

On July 2, a six-year-old first grade student was allegedly raped by two gym instructors at the Vibgyor High School in Bangalore. She was punished by a teacher who asked the victim to stay in an empty room where she was sexually assaulted.

Later when she reached home, she informed her mother about the incident. Her mother found out about the assault seven days later, when a private nursing home hinted that the child could have been raped.
