A Kerala girl was allegedly gang-raped in Bengaluru, and three people, including one from the fairer sex, have been arrested in this connection.

The incident occurred on Thursday but came to the fore lately.

The victim, who works as a freelancer in a company, had booked a bike taxi to reach her house.

The police claimed that the girl was in an inebriated state when the bike taxi driver arrived on the spot. While travelling towards Neeladrinagar, she became almost unconscious.

Taking advantage of the situation, the bike taxi driver took her to his room with the help of his female friend.
