As the incidents drew widespread outrage with no action from the police, Bengaluru’s new Commissioner of Police, Praveen Sood through a series of tweets said his team was working on the case silently.
“As promised we have found credible evidence repeat credible evidence in a case of wrongful confinement, molestation and attempt to rob,” Sood had said in a tweet.
“We have taken action by registering an FIR. Investigation is in progress. Police is working…. though silently,” he had said in another tweet.
Stating that enquiry is underway by an officer of DCP rank, he has said that they have gone through the feeds from 45 cameras on MG road, and unedited video is available with police.

Police had earlier said that no one had come forward to file a complaint about the incident.
