Bengaluru | Two persons were being questioned in connection with the alleged gangrape of a call centre employee in a moving van here. We have rounded up two persons and brought them to the Madiwala Police Station where the case has been registered. 

We are verifying whether they were the ones who allegedly gangraped the call centre woman employee, Deputy Commissioner of Police Rohini Katoch Sepat said. In a reminder of the horrific 2012 gangrape of a paramedical student in Delhi, the woman in her early 20s was waiting to hail an autorickshaw to return to her PG home and boarded the van which stopped by after she was offered a drop.
The woman was allegedly gangraped on the intervening night of Saturday and Sunday by the driver and the cleaner. One allegedly raped her in the vehicle and the other in a deserted spot before she was dropped in Madiwala area here from where she was picked up after a three-hour long ordeal.
The woman, who was initially reluctant to lodge a complaint, was persuaded to do so, police said. She was allegedly threatened by the criminal duo that she would be killed if she complained to police. She was admitted to a hospital on Sunday and discharged yesterday.
Police said they have clues, as they began analysing the CCTV footage at traffic signals along the route taken by the van, which also passed by a police station. In 2005, a 24-year old employee of a city-based multinational firm was raped and murdered by the cab driver who was later sentenced for life.
