Night of Shame: Several girls molested during new year celebrations at Koramanagala
Bengaluru, Jan 01: As the horrors of the 2017 New Year's Eve mass molestation at Brigade Road still haunt the streets of Bengaluru, the city's unruly mob remains unfazed.
Even after the correctional measures taken by the Bengaluru Police on Tuesday night, the city experienced similar instances where the crowd allegedly molested women on the streets of Koramangala.
According to News 9, the mob shamelessly groped several girls present in the area as soon as the clock struck midnight.
Senior police officials including Bengaluru Southeast DCP Isha Pant visited the spot and also interacted with the victims. Later, she directed officials to go through the CCTV footage and identify the miscreants.
In yet another incident, at around 12.15 am, a youth was found bleeding from the mouth and with cut injuries on his nose by police patrolling at Residence Road.
Meanwhile, in Brigade road, the police set up separate lanes on the right side of Brigade Road to ensure the safety of women and children who were visiting the area to celebrate.
The separate lane plan fell flat on its face during 2017 NYE celebrations after many women complained of being molested both on Brigade Road and MG Road.
