The incident, which had happened on December 15, came to light only two days ago after the survivor lodged a complaint with Rajagopalnagar police.
The survivor, who is from Kunigal taluk in Tumakuru, had come to the city to withdraw money from a private chit fund where she had invested. Since it was late in the night and she did not want to travel, she chose to sleep at her friend Komala’s house in Rajagopalnagar.
The next morning Komala left for work at 6:30am. The Kunigal woman was getting ready to leave when Komala’s husband., Nanjappa, sexually assaulted her. He threatened to kill her if she spoke about the incident to anyone.
However, the woman later approached police after learning that she had become pregnant.
