BENGALURU -- With the nation still seething from the horrific mass molestation case reported from Bengaluru during New Year celebrations, yet another shocker has emerged the city where a 23-year-old woman was brutally thrashed and allegedly molested in Nagarwara Main Road on Friday morning.

The woman, a private firm employee, was molested by an unidentified man, while walking towards a bus stop, at around 6:30 AM, near Arabic College Bus stop.

The woman was brutally thrashed and allegedly even bitten on her tongue while resisting the molester.

Meanwhile, a case has been registered against the accused and an investigation has been initiated.

Bengaluru began its New Year in shame as three cases of molestation have been reported since, inviting the wrath of the locals, politicos and activists alike.

On 31 December, several women were molested and groped and lewd remarks passed by miscreants on M G Road and Brigade Road, despite the presence of 1,500 police personnel to control the unruly New Year revellers.

Similarly, another woman was molested on New Year's day as four persons assaulted her in the eastern Kammanahalli area.
