Forty-two-year-old Amba* had filed a police complaint recently against Muthu, her neighbour, for allegedly sexually harassing her.
A day or two later, Amba was taken aback when Muthu, along with nine other men, ransacked her house in East Bengaluru while she was away on Wednesday.
The ten-member gang broke open the door, vandalised her house and also set ablaze the two-wheeler of her neighbour Sreenivas. Sreenivas had reportedly helped Amba file a police complaint following the harassment by 22-year-old Muthu.
Police managed to nab two attackers and have remanded them in judicial custody. Seven others, including the main accused Muthu, are absconding.
Recently, Amba filed a sexual harassment complaint against Muthu, after he barged into her house at 11.45pm and sought sexual favours from her.
When Amba asked Muthu to leave her house, the latter allegedly tried to hold her hands. Muthu reportedly fled the place, after Amba raised an alarm.
After Amba filed the complaint, police summoned Muthu and let him off after he promised not to repeat the offence again. However, while Amba had gone to her daughter's house on Wednesday, Muthu and his friends arrived at her house and vandalised it.
According to the report, Amba works as a domestic help and lives alone.
