Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SP)

Mangaluru, Dec 6: A miscreant forced himself into a room in a women's hostel of a private college located within the limits of Kotekar town panchayat near here. The spot where the crime happened in the early hours on Tuesday December 5 falls within the limits of Ullal police station.

The girl student was asleep inside a room of the women's hostel run by a prestigious educational institution when someone knocked at her door at around 4 am. She thought it must be some hostel staff and opened the door. The miscreant rushed into the room and threatened the girl student. When she tried to raise an alarm, he forcibly closed her mouth with his hand and attacked her with an iron rod, it is gathered. He bound her limbs and demanded payment of five lac rupees.

When the student said she only had Rs 3,000 with her, he snatched away her purse and took away Rs 3,000 in cash. He forcibly took away her ATM card, obtained PIN of the card by threatening her and went away.

On the basis of complaint filed by the girl student, Ullal police have registered a case and begun investigation by checking CCTV footage.

    Just to get this to all public, similar happenings have been reported in our residential area. Not sure if this is the new trend of robbery that has started. Many residents in our area claimed that someone rang the bell in the early morning hours, likely around 4 AM. Luckily they had the presence of mind to look through the windows without rushing out to open the door. It has been reported a shady looking hefty built man was trying these tricks in our residential area. Kindly exercise caution.

    This case looks bit confused.why did she opened the door without asking who and why? girls should be careful in such a time and alone.she should have tried to raise the alarm immediately and not when he entered the room.Then it is too late.One side she mustbe happy he took her money but not harmed her.I am sure it was a part of some money problems?How he would ask her such a huge amount fron a student?Mysterious.she should have given the wrong pin number,and raised alarm immediately before he could escape.Truth will comeout soon.Security was sleeping?no cctv?

    Something totally amiss here. Too silly to believe. There's an attempt to confuse the public I feel. Detailed investigation required into it.
