The accused is Devanahalli resident Mubarak Pasha, 28, who is married and has two minor kids. The 18-year-old girl is a computer science student, who funds her education and family expenses by working as an usherette in marriage functions.

He pushed her into a grove and raped her before leaving her behind. The girl reached home and filed a complaint next day after she was persuaded by her friend.
Based on her complaint, police registered a case under IPC section 376. The girl told police she lives with her mother and is studying final-year computer science. During her spare time, she had taken up the job of hosting/welcoming guests at wedding halls.
