5 students rape collegemate in Karnataka, held as video goes viral
MANGALURU: Five students of a prestigious college in Puttur were arrested on Wednesday for allegedly abducting and raping a Dalit collegemate and threatening her with videos of the act. The accused, all aged 19 and students of BBA and BCom, were apprehended about four months after the crime as the videos went viral and came to the notice of police.
The Dakshina Kannada district police registered a suo motu case following circulation of the videos. The case was registered at the Puttur Women Police Station and two teams were formed to nab the accused.
BM Laxmi Prasad, superintendent of police, said those arrested are Prakyath Shetty, a resident of Barimar, Bantwal; Sunil Gowda of Aryapu village in Puttur; Kishan of Perne village in Bantwal; Prajwal Naik of Perne village; and Gurunandan of Bajathoor village in Puttur. They have been booked under sections of IPC, SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act and IT Act.
警司BM Laxmi Prasad称，被捕者为来自巴里马尔的Prakyath Shetty, 来自普图尔的Sunil Gowda，来自班特瓦尔的Kishan、Prajwal Naik和Gurunandan，已根据刑法及相关法律对其登记立案。
The incident took place between February and March. The survivor said she knew the five youths as they studied in the same college.
Rapists had threatened to make girl’s videos public
On the day of the crime, Sunil called the survivor and asked her to meet him. He and the four others picked her up in a blue hatchback and drove to a forested place. When the survivor asked why they were driving to a remote place, the youths remained silent. In a few minutes, theystopped the car and took turns to rape her and film the act. In her complaint, the survivor told police that she was unaware that the youths were filming the assault.
They drove back with her from the spot and days after, threatened her that they would make the videos public and humiliate her online. Fearing shame, the survivor did not report the assault.
College authorities said the five accused had been suspended following the police complaint against them. “The incident took place during college holidays,” a college source said.

It is a shame for being students and done this type of crime. they should be debared from education and severe punishment should be given.
Finally the oldest profession ( prostitution) should be legalised, so that the society will be clean and safe.
mentioning of caste should be avoided by media.

While i agree that the video should not be circulated, that is what brought this crime to light. Else very likely that the culprits would have remained scotfree and probably repeating their acts. The culprits should be brought to justice under a fast track since the evidence is already there.
