Bengaluru, May 13: Police are of the opinion that the mandatory face mask rule is helping the accused of acid attack that occurred recently in the city to abscond from them.
It has been 15 days since the barbaric acid attack was carried out on the hapless girl. But the police have failed to apprehend the accused who is on the run.
Police officers say that they have never seen the accused face to face except the photo that is provided by the family members. So it is difficult for them to identify the person with the mask. In addition, many accused use hat and face mask when they go in public to avoid detection by the police.
Police officers says that they have published the photos of accused everywhere and have requested the public to help the police in case they come across him. Seven teams are formed to track the accused and various models are being used to catch him. They are searching for him in all pilgrim centres and hotels. They are also checking whether he is still active on social media.
Accused Nagesh sexually harassed many women in Tamil Nadu
Nagesh, who is accused of acid attack on 24-year-old girl in the city and absconding at present, is known to have sexually harassed many women, including his neighbour in his native place of Tamil Nadu.
Nagesh had harassed his neighbour woman in Kodiyalam of Krishnagiri village in Tamil Nadu. Though it was informed to the police, the woman did not file any complaint. Hence, Nagesh was warned and let off by the police.
It is said that Nagesh had come to Bengaluru seven years ago. He resided on rent at the house of victim girl’s aunt. After he harassed the victim, he was asked to vacate the rented house. Then he went back to Tamil Nadu and continued his harassment against women in his neighbourhood there. When Tamil Nadu police called and warned him, he came back to Bengaluru and again started harassing the victim.
It is learnt that one team of police has left to Dehradun after they received a call from a person saying that he is a BSF soldier and having seen Nagesh in that city.
Nagesh has not used his ATM card as well as did not contact his family members after the incident so that he will not fall into the dragnet of police. He is absconding since April 28.
