Married man rapes woman with ‘marriage promise,’ arrested

Nagpur: A married man exploited a young woman sexually for six months by ‘promising’ to marry her. The accused has been arrested.

The victimised 25-year old woman, resident of Nandanvan area, in her complaint told police that the accused Kamalesh Moreshwar Bhakne (32), resident of Rajapeth, Hudkeshwar, ‘befriended’ her a few months ago. As their ‘friendship’ took the roots, the accused doled out a promise that he will marry with her. With the ‘promising words,’ the accused exploited the young woman sexually between March 1 and August 20, 2017. He raped her at different places including Sriyash Daily Needs and Ice Cream Parlour, Cement Road, Nandanvan. However, when the woman insisted the accused Kamalesh to marry her, he started avoiding her. Sensing something amiss, the woman dug out detailed information about the accused and came to know that Kamalesh was already married and he made her a victim of his lust.

Nandanvan API G J Valvi, acting on the complaint of the woman, booked the accused Kamalesh Bhakne under Section 376(2)(N) of the IPC and arrested him. Further probe is on.
