In the first incident, a young woman was allegedly attacked by a man early morning on Friday in North Bengaluru's KG Haali residential area as she was on her way to work, reported NDTV.

The man allegedly grabbed her and pinned her to the ground.

Another report in The Times of India said that the woman suffered injuries, including a cut on her tongue, as she resisted the molester.

In the second incident, a woman was allegedly molested while returning from the gym on Wednesday. Times Now reported that some boys on a motorcycle allegedly tried to pull her T-shirt. The woman has now lodged a police complaint.

These incidents have come to light merely a week after several women were molested and groped and lewd remarks passed by miscreants on MG Road and Brigade Road on New Year's Eve on 31 December night, despite the presence of 1,500 police personnel.

The incident drew flak from many quarters even as Karnataka Home Minister G Parameshwara stoked a controversy by blaming the youngsters "western ways" for the incidents. These remarks came in for flak even as the National Commission for Women chairperson Lalitha Kumaramangalam flayed the minister, demanding his resignation.
