Republic TV has accessed a video showing drunk revellers attacking a brother-sister duo on New Year’s in Bengaluru. The visuals have been accessed by three CCTV cameras installed close by to the site. A brother and a sister was on their way back home when they were stopped by a group of 8-10 drunk youngsters. In the video, the drunk men can be seen assaulting brother-sister duo as their vehicles tyre brushed past of the revellers. The drunkards thrashed the brother and misbehaved with the sister.
In the footage, the drunk men can be seen dancing on the middle of the road and creating ruckus.
The duo, however, refrained from filing a complaint, fearing it could backfire. But after the police accessed the footage, a suo moto complaint has been filed in the case. Two of the assaulters have been arrested as well.
The incident has been reported from Indira Nagar, the same place from where 3-4 cases of molestation were reported last year on the night of January 1.
Bengaluru’s MG road witnessed mass molestation on last New Year’s as well. Many women, who had gathered to usher in the New Year, were harassed and molested by drunk men posing as revellers in Bengaluru's MG Road and Brigade Road on December 31st. A photojournalist from the newspaper Bangalore Mirror even alleged that he had seen several distraught women approaching police women and complaining that hooligans had molested them and made lewd remarks during the New Year's celebrations on December 31.
