Bangalore: A woman IT professional from Jharkhand was allegedly raped in Electronics City police station limits in Bangalore. The incident happened on the intervening night of Thursday and Friday.

"Yes, we have received a complaint. A Jharkhand IT employee was raped at her PG (paying guest accommodation) on the intervening night between Thursday and Friday at about 3 am," Additional Commissioner of Police (Law and Order) Kamal Panth said.

He said the suspect might be someone who had kept a close watch on the PG accommodation as he had gained entry into the room after her roommate had gone for work. First, he was said to have demanded some money and later committed the crime, Panth said.

In the national capital, two young women from Jharkhand were allegedly raped by unidentified persons in North-East Delhi's Bhajanpura area, police said.

The girls told police that an unidentified accused first won their confidence by promising to help them get their railway tickets confirmed and then gave them sedative-laced drinks, raped them and left them in an unconscious state separately at isolated places in the Bhajanpura area.

The 21 and 24-year-old victims had done their graduation from an institution in Gurgaon and had come to NCR on June 2 to collect some documents. They were supposed return to Jharkhand on June 5.

According to police, the duo went to the Anand Vihar railway station where they found that their tickets had not been confirmed.

But they "met a person who offered to get their return tickets confirmed" and said he would take them to old Delhi railway station for the same. The girls told police that, on their way there in an autorickshaw, he gave them a drink laced with sedatives that made them unconscious.

When the duo regained consciousness, they found themselves in Bhajanpura place. With the help of locals, they contacted police. A medical examination of the duo showed that they had been sexually assaulted.

A case under relevant sections has been registered in the matter against unknown persons, police said.
