It’s been 8 years since we lost Nirbhaya, a victim of horrific gang rape. The whole nation was outraged, and we all were hoping for change, but the condition has still not improved.
A 21 years old girl has been raped twice in a moving bus by the bus cleaner. The girl was traveling from Nagpur to Pune in a private luxury bus. The girl boarded the bus from Nagpur.
The victim alleged that the 25-year-old bus cleaner, Sameer Deokar asked her to change her seat and shift from seat no5 to seat no 15. The accused later gagged and threatened her with a knife and raped her twice.
The girl filed her FIR in the Pune’s Ranjangaon Police, but the complaint was later shifted to Malegaon Police of Washim as the incident took place in the Washim district.
The victim belongs to the Gondia district, and she is an employee at a private company in MIDC at Rajnandgaon in Pune. She has gone to a village in the Bhandara district to attend the wedding of her sister.
A senior police officer of Ranjangaon Police Station said A zero FIR has been registered based on the victim’s statement. The police have registered a case against the accused.
The luxury bus has been seized from Pune by Malegaon Police and has sent a team to arrest the accused from Nagpur.
Gang rapes and rape-and-murder cases have increased in the Maharashtra in the past few years.
