    2 NCP officer bearers may land in jail for 2 yrs for sharing details of gang rape survivor

    Nagpur: In an ignorant move, two senior office bearers of Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) and the city women’s wing chief have posted and shared the details of Umred of gang rape survivor on Whatsapp, thus inviting legal action them. Now the trio has been booked under section 228A of Indian Penal Code (IPC) by Nagpur rural police. The accused had allegedly shared the name and photographs of the gang rape survivor.

    Sources said charges, if proved, may lead to imprisonment up to two years and fine for the women NCP leaders.
    The WhatsApp group administrator and members, who may have forwarded the posts, too would be under the scanner in the investigation by Sub-Divisional Police officer, Umred sub-division, Pornima Taware.

    A section of media had highlighted the glitch being committed by the NCP women members – Urvashi Giradkar and Alka Kamble. The NCP women activists reportedly tried to gain political mileage by highlighting the crime, and claiming to be fighting for the cause by posting details of the visit of ex-minister Jayant Patil to the hospital last week, and their agitations later.

    Later Maharashtra State Commission for Women’s city-based member Neeta Thakare intervened in the matter, following which Umred police registered an FIR against Kamble and Giradkar under IPC 228A for revealing the name and picture of the gang rape survivor, who is now recuperating at a private hospital.

    NCP city president Anil Ahirkar condemned the repeated posting of the survivor’s name and image in the group, saying he would take up the issue in the next party meeting. “It is wrong to post such sensitive details,” he said.
    SP, Nagpur rural, Rakesh Ola said police would not probe the case under any political pressure.
