- New video evidence of New Year's Eve horror in Bengaluru
- Woman walking home attacked by men on two-wheeler
- People watched, did not help. CCTV recorded ordeal
She can be seen walking on the road when two men on a scooter approach her. As they get closer, she breaks into a run. One of the men on the scooter lunges towards her. He then gropes and molests her while she fights back. Seconds later, he throws her hard onto the ground. As the woman picks herself up, the men race away. Eyewitnesses do nothing. Not to stop the men, not to help the woman get up off the ground.
The mass molestations in the heart of Bengaluru took place a few hours before the young woman heading home was attacked. She had taken an auto home and was walking the final stretch to her house when she was assaulted.
Bengaluru's Night of Shame - December 31 - captured by multiple cameras in all its horror - has outraged the country, in part because of the remarks of Home Minister G Parameshwara, who is responsible for policing. "These things do happen," he said about the women who were subjected to physical abuse. After furious calls for his resignation and a summons from the country's top women's rights body to explain his misogynistic remarks, he said he had been misquoted and misunderstood.
