- 5 accused were arrested in the case on Saturday
Bengaluru: In a move that has invited a lot of criticism and become a topic of hot debate, the University of Mysuru has prohibited girl students from moving around on its Mansangotriya campus after 6.30 pm. The order comes days after the gangrape of a girl student.
Girls’ movement on campus in the evenings has been prohibited on the university’s Kukkarahalli Lake campus as well. According to the university, the order was issued on the verbal direction of the police department.
Not just the order, but even “insensitive” comments by politicians on the matter have raked up a lot of controversy.
The orders come in the aftermath of the brutal rape of a 22-year-old girl student on Tuesday.
The student had gone with her classmate to Chamundi Hills on Mysuru outskirts. A group of drunk men followed the couple into the forest and assaulted them. They reported demanded money and, on being refused, beat up the youth and raped the girl, leaving her. She sustained severe injuries. Both the students had to be hospitalized.
5 persons arrested
The Karnataka police arrested five persons accused in the Mysuru gangrape case on Saturday. Four of them were arrested in Sathyamangala, Tamil Nadu. The fifth one was arrested from Chamarajanagar in Karnataka, according to police sources.
This is not the first time that the accused are involved in such a crime. Investigation revealed that they had raped a woman five months ago as well.
