A 21-year-old student of National Law School of India University was allegedly gang-raped inside the adjacent Jnanabharathi campus of Bangalore University, police said on Monday.
The second-year student, staying in the university hostel, in her complaint to the police said that the incident took place on Saturday night while she was out with her friend, who works with an IT firm.
The duo reached the place in a car and when they were walking in the forested area of the campus, a group of 6-8 drunk men attacked them and forcibly took them deeper into the forest, she alleged in her complaint.
The victim said the gang then demanded money from her friend, who told them that he had kept his wallet in his car. After sending him to bring the wallet along with one of its members, the gang sexually assaulted her, she said.
In his complaint, the boy said that as he was returning, he found the girl as well as the men missing. He then sighted a beat constable as he was nearing the car and approached him for help following which the gang member accompanying him fled from the scene. Though he along with police searched for the girl in the area, they could not find her.
Around midnight, the boy got a call from the girl saying the gang had dropped her back near the hostel after raping her.
The police, however, said that they did not find any injury marks on the girl. The police said they sent the girl to a hospital where she was medically examined, adding that the medical result is awaited. The cops are, meanwhile, are combing the forested area to nab the accused.
The police also say that for about 20 days, the forested area has been closed for vehicles at night. They say that the duo might have sneaked in.(With PTI inputs)
