Bengaluru: Two women, aged 24 and 30, were allegedly gang raped in separate incidents on the outskirts of the city.

The police have identified one of them as a 30-year-old destitute woman from Nepal who has been living in Bengaluru since 2003. The police said that she was raped in Anekal on Thursday.

The incident came to light on Saturday when a volunteer from an NGO saw her lying at a bus stand in pain.

The victim narrated her ordeal following which she was taken to Lady Curzon and Bowring Hospital.

The victim hailed from Nepal and has no family in the city. She eked out a living by doing odd jobs and sleeping in public places around Anekal, a senior police officer said.

On Thursday, while she was sleeping near the bus stand, a gang of five persons allegedly dragged her into a dilapidated house and raped her.

The next morning, she gained consciousness, and returned to the bus stand from where she was rescued.

In another incident, the Madanayakanahalli police on Saturday arrested a 32-year-old rowdy-sheeter and two of his associates for allegedly raping a 24-year-old garment factory employee at her house in the outskirts of the city on November 16. A fourth accused is on the run.

According to the police, the accused, Raghavendra, Puneeth, Venkatesh and Vijay, went to the victim’s house on November 16 to confront her husband over a long-standing row. However, her husband was not at home.

When the men realised this, they allegedly attacked and raped the woman. “She was in a state of shock and did not report the rape,” said the police. But when her husband did not return home for many days, she approached the Madanayakanahalli police, who during the course of their investigation, learned that she had been raped.
