A real estate professional sexually abuses a private company employee in Bengaluru

A man sexually abused a girl, after making her a convincing offer of providing her with a rented house in Bengaluru. The 28-year-old woman was taken to a lodge and sexually abused by the man who is reported to be a real estate professional. This incident took place in HV Circle which comes under RR Nagar police station jurisdiction in Bengaluru, Karnataka. The victim was an employee in a private company and was searching for a rented house in Bengaluru. 

On 15 July, the victim was introduced to the assaulter, Obalappa through one of her colleagues assuming he could help in finding her a house. As promised, Obalappa showed the woman a couple of houses, which she had refused to take. But on 17 July, Obalappa called her back and stated that he had found a new house and called her to come over that noon. She was called to HV Village circle, after which he took her to a lodge to discuss the rent details. But things took a wrong turn when the man sexually assaulted her. The victim managed to escape from the situation and left the lodge. 

Following the woman out from the lodge, the man threatened her that he would not spare her life if she complained to the police and would spread false information on social media as well. The brave woman then took a step ahead and filed a case against the man in RR Nagar police station. The police have arrested Obalappa and further investigation is now underway.
