Two attempts at rape, one of which was against a minor girl, were foiled in the city by an alert mother and an angry husband in a span of 12 hours.

Banaswadi police arrested Ramesh (42), a painter, who allegedly attempted to rape his daughter, in the presence of his wife, on Saturday night.

The victim’s mother, stated that Ramesh, who returned home in an inebriated state, slept next to their 14-year-old daughter and started to sexually assault her. Noticing this, the mother tried to pull him back, while the girl tried to escape. But Ramesh pushed his wife away and caught the girl. The mother immediately raised an alarm and the neighbours rushed to the spot and thrashed him. The mother then filed a case of attempt to rape against her husband.

Man Thrashed

In another incident, Pulakeshinagar police arrested Mohammed Salman (32), administrator of an educational trust, after he allegedly misbehaved with a woman at Frazer Town.

The victim, who is pursuing MA in Urdu from KSOU, had come to Iqra Education Trust for coaching.

The woman, in her complaint, stated that around 11 am when she was at the institute, Salman asked for her phone number and offered to drop her home on his two-wheeler. When he began to take a deviation and asked her to cover her face, the woman grew suspicious and got off the bike. Salman followed her and forced her to get on to the bike. When she called her husband, Salman rode away. The husband caught Salman lurking near the institute and thrashed him, before handing him over to the police. Sub Inspector E Shivakumara told Express that based on her complaint, a case against Salman has been booked under Section IPC 354 (Assault or criminal force against woman with intention to outrage her modesty).
