A woman in Bengaluru has taken to social media to recount her alleged sexual assault ordeal, igniting a wave of concern and outrage. The victim shared details of the incident, which occurred on Tuesday night as she was entering her house.

In her post, the woman described how a man allegedly groped her from behind as she was about to open her gate after being dropped off by a friend. She shared a video purportedly showing the accused attempting to hide his face from the camera.

Despite the victim’s claims that the accused confessed to the assault, she stated her reluctance to file a formal complaint, citing concerns over potential legal repercussions due to her actions in self-defense. She expressed frustration with the legal system, lamenting that it often fails to adequately protect victims.

The woman also highlighted that the accused was not intoxicated and appeared to be deliberately targeting her. She criticized the perceived leniency of the law, expressing sympathy for the perpetrator’s family while condemning his actions.

In response to the social media post, the Bengaluru police offered support and urged the victim to provide specific details of the incident for further action, while also sharing emergency contact information for immediate assistance.

The incident underscores ongoing concerns regarding safety and the need for robust measures to address sexual harassment and assault in Bengaluru and beyond.
