BSP leader’s son abducts, rapes 22-year-old woman in moving car
BANGALORE: A 22-year-old woman was allegedly abducted and raped by the son of a BSP leader in a car in the presence of her friend in an upmarket pocket of Fraser Town in Bangalore on Friday night. While Naseer Hyder, 23, has been arrested, his four friends who aided him in the crime are on the run.
In her police complaint, the woman said she was sitting with a male friend in his car in front of her apartment complex when the four men attacked them. The men drove the woman and her friend around the city in the car. One of the men sexually assaulted her, silencing her friend at knife-point.
The woman said she had been gone out for dinner with friends. The male friend offered to drop her and two others home in his Honda City car. After the other friends had been dropped home, the woman and her friend reached her house around midnight. They were sitting in the car and talking when a white Skoda Fabia car (KA 03 MJ 8433) passed by.Around 12.15am the car returned to the spot. Four men alighted from the Skoda and hurried towards the car in which the woman was sitting. Police said the quartet told the woman and her friend that they had been seeing them in the car regularly. The men claimed to be policemen and asked the duo to open the car doors.
“They pushed us into the back seat of the car,” the woman told the police. “There were two guys on either side of us, and two in the front.”
Hyder allegedly began sexually assaulting the woman as the car began moving. The Skoda, with a fifth man at the wheel, tailed the Honda City.
“When I refused he threatened to take us to the police station, claiming his friends and he were policemen,” she said in the complaint. When she tried to resist the rapist, he told her: “Give me five minutes and I will let you go.”
She said the men kept driving around and stopped next to the Cox Town railway block.
Hyder’s three associates alighted and pulled out the woman’s friend from the car. They pointed a ‘sharp object’ against his neck, and asked him to keep his mouth shut. Hyder again allegedly raped the woman in the car.
The men later demanded Rs 50,000 from the survivor and her friend. On realizing they had nothing, they took away her male friend’s watch. The men also threatened to call a police contact on Hyder’s phone.
Later, the woman and her friend were allowed to leave in the latter’s car.
