Married Woman Gang-raped in Pune

Pune, April 2 (IANS) In a shocking incident, a 25-year-old married woman was gang-raped by three persons after they offered her a lift in their car and took her to a desolate location, police said Friday. Two of the three accused have been arrested.

The victim was staying alone in Hinjewadi area, a suburb on the outskirts of the city, in a rented accommodation since the past fortnight.

"She is married and her husband works in the US. She has done her Masters in Hospital Administration and had come here from Nagpur to look for a job. She had appeared for some interviews," crime branch inspector of Hinjewadi police station N.S. Bhosale-Patil told IANS.

He said that late Thursday evening, as she waited for some transport to go home, a maroon Indica car (No. MH-14-AV-3015) halted and offered her a lift to her destination.

However, the accused drove her to a desolate location and repeatedly gang-raped her, he said.

She was found abandoned by some passersby early today who informed the police and the matter came to light.

After recording her statement, police admitted her to the Y.B. Chavan Hospital for treatment.

Meanwhile, using mobile tracking methods and wireless alerts of the vehicle, they managed to trace the Indica as it attempted to leave the city this morning.

"Moving swiftly and using mobile tracking, the police cracked the case within two hours by nabbing two of the three accused around 3 a.m. today (Friday)," Bhosale-Patil said.

"We nabbed two accused, Ganesh Uttam Kamble, 26, and Ranjit Shahaji Gade, 25, both hailing from Osmanabad district. They are working as drivers and have confessed to their crime," he said.

    Hey Thackery what do you have to say about the rape cases that took place in Pune, do you have any comments on this, or for this also you will accuse the lady, that it was her fault for taking a lift. These are your Marathi Manos who can do this cowardly act and run away, their need to be shot between their legs, new rule should be bought the men/boys who commit a rape should be castarated in public & spicy Black pepper, spicy red hot chillies smeared on their private parts & eyes nose & ears so that it will be a lesson to another crimmnal to ever think he can repeat the same thing again.
    These men who keep raping innocent ladies/young girls are losers who do this type of crimes, they should be left loose but hanged to death in a most torching manner so that all can see openly for the world to see.
