A man aged above 40, who has a family, desperately wanted to marry a 20-year-old girl. When she and her family refused to marry her off to him, he kidnapped her, forcibly tied the Mangalasutra and raped her.

The incident occurred at Magadi Police Station Limits. Santhosh from Dasarahalli in Bengaluru was pestering a family which had a 20-year-old daughter, that he wanted to marry her. But the girl and her family had refused his offer.

Santhosh is already married and has two kids. When the girl's family refused to even speak to him, he hatched a plan.

The girl would sleep at her grandmother's house which is close by to their house, as the granny lived there alone.
