Canteen cashier raped on Infosys campus in Pune

A female contractual staffer was raped on the Infosys campus here on December 27. Two persons have been arrested.

The incident came to light only on Tuesday after the employee filed a complaint with the Hinjewadi police. The woman works as a cashier in one of the canteens in Phase 1 of the sprawling 114-acre campus. One of the two accused raped the woman in the restroom while the other filmed it on a mobile phone, Inspector Vishwajeet Khule said.

They are said to be part of the housekeeping staff employed by a contractor, according to a statement issued by Infosys.

The accused allegedly threatened the victim that they would make the clip public if she disclosed the incident to anyone.

‘Stringent measures’

Infosys said in its statement that the company was working closely with the police to aid their investigation.

“We have stringent security measures and a zero-tolerance policy against sexual harassment, which extends to contractual staff. The company will take action as per the policy,” the statement said.
