Mumbai - Indian police said on Tuesday they had arrested two contract workers accused of raping a woman at the premises of technology giant Infosys, in the latest incident of sexual violence to rock the country.
The men, aged in their twenties, filmed the alleged assault, which occurred at one of the IT firm's offices in the western city of Pune in Maharashtra state, officers said.

"The woman works as a cashier at the canteen and had gone to the washroom in the evening when one of the men assaulted her while the other filmed it," said Suresh Bhonsle, a senior inspector for the Pune police.
"They have been arrested and have appeared in court," he said, adding that the men also worked in the canteen...one as a cleaner and the other a waiter.
Infosys, India's second largest IT services exporter, said in a statement that it was investigating the "alleged incident at our Pune campus involving our partners' contractual staff.
"We have stringent security measures in place on all our campuses and have a zero tolerance policy against sexual harassment which extends to our contractual staff as well.
"The company will take necessary action as per policy," the statement said.
The incident is the latest in a series of high-profile cases to have shone a spotlight on women's safety in India in recent years.
It comes a week after lawmakers passed a bill allowing harsher punishments for juveniles aged 16-18 following an outcry over the release of a young rapist who served three years in a detention facility for his part in a notorious gang rape in 2012.
Earlier this month, an Indian court sentenced seven men to death after they were convicted of the rape and murder of a Nepalese woman suffering from mental illness, reports said.
