Bengaluru molestation survivor identifies attackers
In a boost to investigators in the horrific Kammanahalli molestation case, the survivor finally arrived in person to identify the attackers. The Bengaluru police breathed a sigh of relief and appreciated the woman's courage to identify the assaulters without which filing a charge sheet against those arrested would have been difficult.
A CCTV video of the molestation on New year's had gone viral in the backdrop of mass molestation allegations in Bengaluru. While the police made arrests based on the complaint of a private citizen, the survivor had refused to help the team with identifying the assaulters. The survivor had not come to the identification parade the last two times but after much persuasion by the police on the importance of her involvement, she took part in the identification parade on Tuesday.
The Bengaluru police had arrested 6 persons for molesting the survivor who had left the city after the incident. Scarred by the incident, the survivor had refused to cooperate and the police had to depend on her friend's statements to zero in on the accused. Success of Tuesday's identification parade comes as a shot in the arm for investigating authorities.
