A city-based software engineer, who took on a gang of four inebriated men for sexually harassing his female colleague on the busy HAL airport road but allegedly failed to get help from the police, has launched a campaign on social media with the hashtag ‘UselessBengaluruPolice’. The campaign was launched by Arjun Nandakumar.

He alleged that the police control room staff asked him to ‘hold on to the four accused’ till they arrived at the spot.

"I wish I had super powers to do that," said Nandakumar in his post. Notably, no Hoysala vehicle arrived, even though they are supposed to reach a crime spot within 10 minutes of receiving a call for help. Narrating the ordeal that took place on Friday, he said he was returning to work after having lunch in a nearby restaurant with his colleagues when a group of four drunk men, standing outside a wine shop near their office, groped one of his female colleagues. The victim slapped one of the drunk men and demanded an apology.

When Nandakumar caught one of them, he was attacked.
