Thiruvananthapuram: In another case of sexual assault which came to light here on Monday, a woman was assaulted at Vanchiyoor in Thiruvananthapuram last week at around 11 pm when she arrived at the General Hospital Junction to buy medicines.

Speaking to Mathrubhumi News, the woman said that she had gone out to buy medicines but realised she forgot to take money. She decided to go back home and was riding on her two wheeler when she realised that a stranger was following her.

When she passed over a speed hump, the man tried to attack her. Immediately, she tried to get inside the compound of her house. Soon after, the man entered and groped her, touched her private parts and attacked her.

According to the complainant, she was severely assaulted and suffered injuries on her left eye, head and cheeks. There were no vehicles on the road at the time of the incident. Two women kept staring from the neighbouring house, she alleged.

The woman immediately told her daughter who later informed the Pettah police. “We asked the police to arrange an ambulance, but they were not ready to do. It was my daughter who took me to a private hospital,” she said.

“After the attack, I felt my vision was impaired and had difficulty walking. Many people told me to lodge a complaint, otherwise the assailant will repeat this behaviour. I then lodged a complaint with the commissioner,” she added.

The police have not yet nabbed the accused even after one week of the attack.

In Kozhikode, a woman lodged a sexual assault complaint against a hospital staff of Government Medical College in Kozhikode where she was attacked post surgery inside an ICU.
