In a shocking case of events, young men abducted a 15 year old girl and forced her to drink alcohol while misbehaving with her. On September 27th, the victim who is a resident of Bangalore was forcibly taken by two men she met in the neighborhood and struck up a friendship with.
According to the complaint filed by the little girl at Basaveshwaranagar police station, she was walking to her school from her home when the two accused boys, Manoj and Morchi stopped her near Motappa park at around 8:20 am. Both of them were on a Honda Dio scooter and were accompanied by two other friends who were riding another scooty.
In the complaint the girl said, the boys forced her to come with them on the scooter to Netaji Park which is also known as a mini forest. She at first had thought that they would just drop her off at school but they had other plans. They made her drink something after which she passed out. At around 11:30 am, the girl remembers them telling her to wait in the park while they would be back. She is not aware if all of them left or someone stayed back.
They returned at around 1:30 pm with a few bottles of beer and forced her to drink even though she was a minor and not of legal drinking age. During this time they kept touching her inappropriately. At 3:30 pm, the boys took her to another place and forced her to drink again. She lost consciousness after that and doesn’t remember anything.
According to the reports they dropped her off at Motappa Park at 7:30 pm and fled from the scene. Luckily for her, a woman staying near the park noticed all this and called her mother at 8 pm. According to the woman, the 15-year old girl was unable to stand and was continuously puking when she found her. Her parents reached the spot at 8:30 pm and immediately gave her first-aid.
An investigating officer from the Basaveshwaranagar police station said that the girl had not revealed what exactly happened at the park. “Though she knows the accused duo, she is still in a state of shock. The boys, Manoj and Morchi are in their early 20’s. We did not force her to give us all the details at this stage. Let her recover from the incident and then we will get all the details. The boys, we think, live close by. We are searching for them,” said the officer. A case has been registered under IPC section 366A—Procuration of minor girl.
The mother of the girl said to the police that her daughter had never consumed alcohol. “They made her drink it knowing that she is below drinking age and it was against her consent. She says she wasn’t able to stand or walk and had to sit in the park and that’s when she saw Manoj again.”
