Construction company AIG has been convicted of rape, sodomy and sexual assault of a 27-year-old woman in Bengaluru.
The company was found guilty on September 1 of the rape, with the conviction affirmed on December 10.
The verdict is a huge blow to AIG as it had been accused of rape by a woman in a report that had been filed against it.
The woman filed the FIR against the company in November 2017.
The FIR was filed under section 376 (murder) of the IPC.
The police said the company had allegedly hired a man to carry out the job.
Police officers said the woman was allegedly lured to a house in the outskirts of Bengaluru and raped after which she was allegedly forced to work in the company’s office.
The court had earlier upheld the FIRs conviction and remanded the case for further proceedings.
The case was heard by a special magistrate on January 9, 2018.
The special magistrate, Rakesh Kumar, had said that the woman had not met her son for more than a month and there was no evidence that he was working.
The judge, M.K.S. Kishore, had also said that she did not have a written contract and had no legal rights.
The defence had alleged that the complainant had no knowledge of the work and had only heard about the work when she was going to collect the property for her husband.
The trial was adjourned till December 13.
