Bengaluru, Nov 6 (IANS) A 19-year-old nurse was allegedly raped in a moving bus by its driver at Hoskote on the city’s eastern outskirts, police said on Friday.

“We have arrested accused Ravi, 26, with bus cleaner Manjunath, 23, on a complaint by the victim that she was raped by the driver when she was alone in the bus on Thursday night,” Bengaluru Rural Additional Superintendent of Police S.R. Ramesh told IANS here.

The attack took place when the young woman boarded the bus at Sulibele to go to work at a nursing home in Hoskote, 30 km from the city centre.
