A 19-year-old BCom student has allegedly been raped by her 25-year-old neighbour after being offered a drop in his car from her Magadi Road college. Though the alleged incident happened three months ago, the incident came to light only on Friday when she was taken to doctor by her parents because she was complaining of drowsiness often. To their horror, a medical check-up revealed she that she was three month’s pregnant. It was then that the girl revealed what had happened.
In her police complaint, she said when she was waiting for BMTC bus to go home after finishing her classes, her neighbour, identified as Eshwar, came and stopped his car at the busstop and offered her a lift. Having missed her scheduled bus, she then decided to take the lift. According to the girl, Eshwar then allegedly drove the car towards Mahalakshmi Layout entrance and parked his car in a corner and raped her. Eshwar allegedly threatened her not to raise the voice and just co-operate with him. The girl, in her complaint, said she was too scared and hence did not make an attempt to call people for help. The girl was dropped halfway and she went home, but she did not tell her parents about the incident.
The girl and Eshwar were subjected for medical tests. Eshwar, a welding shop owner, has been arrested and sent to judicial custody on Friday. Eshwar reportedly told police that he knew the girl for the last few months as they stay in the same area and he had not had forcible sex with her.
