Bengaluru: Techie assaulted by mob; seven held
The Bengaluru police have detained seven people after a techie on Sunday was alleged that she was attacked in Talaghattapura area located on the outskirts of the city. The victim has been identified as Nandini, a resident of Avalahalli.
She was brutally assaulted by a huge mob after she reported to the police about illegal transportation of cattle for slaughter near Tippu Circle in Avalahalli in Bengaluru South on Saturday night.
The victim said,''Trap was set up for me when I reported an illegal activity & the cattle mafia. This was a trap set up by the police. When we went to the spot after police complaint, I saw a mob gathered.'
''The mob took up big boulders, bricks and started hurling at the car and also abused us. I was scared for my life,'' Nandini added.
Meanwhile, condemning the incident, former Chief Minister BS Yeddyurappa took to Twitter and said, "Condemn the brutal mob-attack on the woman who exposed illegal cow slaughter. This violent attack today in Bengaluru is another proof law & order breakdown under @cmofkarnataka Sh. @siddaramiah."
