Nagpur: With the efforts of Nagpur Crime Branch personnel and the Detective Branch (DB-Squad) of Yashodhara Police Station, the accused who had carried out a day-light in school director’s house were arrested late in the night of August 19, 2016.
According to police sources, around 6 accused had barged into a School Director’s house situated in HB Nagar and looted booty worth Rs 1. Lakhs on knife point. The goons had allegedly locked the three women in a room before fleeting the spot. The cops said that the incident occurred at Plot No A-137, HB Nagar, Near Chikhli over bridge at 1:30 pm when complainant Sunanda Bharat Parate aged 45 was at home along with her maid Lilabai Rambhad aged 65 years and a neighbor lady identified as Chetna Kolhe aged 46 years.
The goons had allegedly come in a car and barged into the house. When Sunanda Parate enquired their identity, one of the goons had allegedly claimed that her son had raped his sister. Angered over this wild allegation, Sunanda had asked the goons to immediately leave the place.
After that, the goons whipped out their knives and threatened Sunanda and the two other women present in the house. The goons had snatched the gold ring, Mangalsutra and other ornaments and locked all the three women inside a room from outside. Three of the goons had allegedly gone to the second floor and removed Rs 40,000/- in cash kept in an almirah and fled the spot in the car in which they had arrived.
Once the women ascertained that the goons have left the spot, they raised an alarm for help and the neighbours rushed into their home to release them from the room in which they were locked. The cops of Yashodhara Police Station rushed to their home on receipt of information where they came to know what had happened in the house of Sunanda Parate. Senior police officials too had visited the crime scene.
