The woman hailing from Tumkuru had come to the city to take membership in a tennis club functioning at the sprawling Cubbon Park when the incident occurred, they said.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (Central) Sandeep Patil said “The incident came to light when an Assistant Sub-Inspector who was on rounds noticed the woman sitting near Siddalingaiah Circle around 2.30 AM and questioned her.”

He said, “Immediately she was brought to the Cubbon Park Police Station and a detailed statement taken from her.”

The woman had come to the club late afternoon. Though some workers told her there was none in the club and asked her to come today, she decided to stay back near by.

At about 9:30 PM noticing her alone in the park two security guards approached her, the DCP said.

When she asked them to help her make her exit from the park as she did not know the way, the guards under the pretext of helping her had taken her to a secluded place and allegedly raped her.

Patil said, “A case has been registered last night. Guards have been detained, detailed investigation is going on and medical examination of victim and two accused is also being done.”

He said a case has been booked under Indian Penal Code section 376 (punishment for rape).
