A little over 24 hours ago, 25-year-old Sania Bargi, who worked at a call centre in Bangalore, was found murdered on a national highway in Karnataka.

In December 2005, Pratibha Murthy, another call centre employee, was allegedly raped and killed by her vehicle driver. It happened, again, in Bangalore.
