‘Be it Young Lovers or…’ K’taka Tourism Min Says Mysuru Rape Victim Shouldn’t Have Gone to Isolated Area


A day after Karnataka Home Minister Araga Jnanendra mentioned that the Mysuru gang-rape sufferer mustn’t have gone to a abandoned space, the state’s tourism minister echoed an analogous sentiment, saying the lady mustn’t have ventured into an remoted space at night time.

“Be it young lovers or newlywed couples, they shouldn’t go to such places. We cannot tell everyone not to go. Police can’t be deployed at all such spots,” Karnataka Tourism Minister Anand Singh mentioned.

The lady, in her early 20s and a pupil in Karnataka, was allegedly gang-raped by 4 males close to Mysore on Tuesday night and her good friend was badly crushed up on objecting. The rape of the younger MBA pupil within the cultural capital of Karnataka has left town in shock.

The lady had gone to the foothills of the Chamundi Hills, a outstanding pilgrim and vacationer vacation spot, together with her classmate.

Four others who had been within the neighborhood then accosted them and tried to assault the scholar. When her good friend objected, he was crushed with stones and overpowered. The lady was taken to a desolate location and raped by the 4 males who had been in an intoxicated state.

Her good friend reached out to the police and lodged a criticism first whereas the sufferer later gave her assertion. The police mentioned she has been admitted to a personal hospital whereas her members of the family are coming from Maharashtra. She was out of hazard and was in a position to give leads on the culprits.

Jnanendra’s assertion to the ANI, that the lady and her male good friend “mustn’t have gone to a abandoned space” drew sharp reactions from the Congress.

According to the FIR (first information report), a group of men surrounded the two when they visited the Chamundi Hills in the outskirts of the city and asked them for money. On refusing to pay, the two were attacked by the four men, who were in an intoxicated state.

“Such incidents are very sensitive and we cannot disclose information that hampers the victim. The victim has given us some details, her friend also has given his statement. An FIR has been taken up in Alanahalli police station,” mentioned Mysore Police Commissioner Chandra Gupta.

Terming it a “very unlucky” incident, Home Minister Araga Jnanendra said he has directed police to take stern action against the culprits.
