BJP women workers taken into custody for protesting against rapes


Bengaluru: Bharatiya Janata Party women activists have been taken into preventive custody while they were marching towards the Chief Minister Siddaramaiah's residence to protest against rising cases of rapes in the city. The BJP also held protests outside the school where the incident took place.

Meanwhile, the school management after a meeting with parents has decided to reopen the school from Thursday. The school's decision comes despite the fact that a section of parents had walked out of the meeting with the authorities.

A six-year-old girl student was allegedly sexually assaulted twice in the school premises on October 28 and 29. Hindi teacher Jayashankar was arrested on Friday after "admitting" to the crime while the Principal and Director of the school were taken into custody on Tuesday under IPC sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 336 (act endangering life or personal safety of others).

Bengaluru has seen a series of incidents of sexual assault on minors, after which the Chief Minister had promised to set up a task force.
