Mangaluru,July 12,2015 : In a shocking incident that took place on the night of July 11, a group of unidentified men reportedly barged into the house of a woman at PWD Quarters at Bondel on the pretext of asking for water and not only gagged and assaulted her but also robbed cash and valuables.
The incident was reported from the house of a woman named A Radha (58), who worked as a Stenographer in Commercial Tax Department and lived alone in her house. She hails from Madikeri and her husband had passed away in March.
It has been gathered that as many as five unidentified men knocked at her doors at around 9 pm asking for water and saying that their car had met with an accident. However when Radha asked them to take the water from a bucket outside, the strangers said they wanted drinking water. When Radha opened the door slightly to give them water, they pushed hard and barged inside.
It is learnt they reportedly gagged and assaulted her and remained in the house all through the night when they robbed a gold chain, a ring and three cell phones apart from a cash of Rs 35000.
It was only after they left that Radha managed to free herself and contact a neighbour Timmayya who is also her colleague and lived in the same area.
The Kavoor police rushed to the spot with a dog squad and finger print experts.
Investigations are underway.
