Two policemen have been accused of raping a mentally-challenged woman in Tumkur, Karnataka and an FIR has been registered against them.

The woman’s brother said that he received a call around 3 am, when he was informed that his sister had been found and would be dropped off at their home in Jayanagar, as Times Now reported.

When the survivor’s brother was phoned, he heard his sister scream for help and say she was molested by the two men in the jeep, who then sped off. The man said that his mother would be able to recognise the assailant cops.

The man said that his sister has undergone treatment in the past and isn’t aware of things. He said she stepped out of the house around 8 pm and the family assumed she went to a friend’s house, as she has in the past without informing family members.

A woman has lodged a complaint of rape against an Additional Sub-Inspector. We are questioning him as the law is same for everybody.
