Bengaluru: Karnataka police arrested three persons in connection with the gang rape and murder of a 38-year-old woman under Jigani police station limits here.

The incident took place last week near Hakkipikki colony near Bannerghatta town. According to the police, the victim Muniratna, a resident of Byatarayanadoddi was walking with her child when the accused waylaid her and forcibly took her to a secluded place. The trio threw her child into a bush and gang-raped the woman, and later killed her.

When the victim didn’t return till late, her family searched for her and finally approached the police.

Meanwhile, the accused tried to mislead the cops by posing as good Samaritans and even joined their search operation. One of the accused found the boy and brought him out from the bushes. Later, the dead body of the woman was tracked.

One of the accused gave a media byte in this regard and expressed concern over the incident. He claimed that he, with his friends, joined the search operation to track the child.

The police had formed four teams to crack the case. The police grew suspicious about the statements of Harish and questioned him. Harish constantly changed his versions and police detained and grilled him. The accused then confessed to the crime during the interrogation.

He revealed that with his two friends, they committed crime under the influence of drugs.

When the police went to arrest the other two, the accused Soma a.k.a Somashekara tried to escape and attacked the policemen with a dagger. The police had to shoot him in the leg and was later shifted to a hospital.
