30 days after incident woman spots molester, alerts cops on mobile app.

Bengaluru: An alert software engineer, who was molested in a moving bus a month ago, identified the culprit when he got into the same bus again on Wednesday and alerted the police.

In a swift operation, the Bellandur police intercepted the BMTC bus and nabbed the accused within 15 minutes. The accused, Madhusudhan Rao, 47, a resident of Uttarahalli, is a consultant in an MNC. Incidentally, the 26-year-old victim also works with the same company, but different campus.

According to the police, the woman was molested by Rao in the moving BMTC Volvo Bus on April 10. Then, she had managed to click the photograph of the accused, who had escaped when the passengers tried to nab him.

Exactly a month after the incident, on Wednesday evening, Rao boarded the same bus, which was going to Uttarahalli. Unaware of the fact that the woman he molested a month ago was in the bus, he sat right in front of where the woman was seated.

“The woman identified him and immediately searched for the jurisdictional police station with the help of a mobile application. Later, she called and informed the police control room staff, who in turn alerted the jurisdictional Bellandur police. A Pink Hoysala patrolling team was put on the job. Head Constables B Mahesh, Arif Pasha and woman police constable Pavithra Banagar intercepted the bus in 15 minutes on Inner Ring Road and nabbed the accused,” police said. The Bellandur police have booked the accused under section 354 (assault or criminal force to woman with intent to outrage her modesty) of the IPC.
