According to police sources, the first incident occurred in Yashodhara Nagar. A four-year-old girl was playing outside her house. One of the neighbours who are the accused identified as Suraj Jagdev Yadav aged 40 years lured the minor victim by offering to give one rupee and called her inside his house. After luring the minor girl inside the house, the accused raped her. On learning about the rape, the family members of the victim lodged a complaint with the Yashodhara Nagar Police Station. The police have registered a case under relevant sections of Indian Penal Code against the accused Suraj Jagdev Yadav and have arrested him.
The second incident occurred in MIDC area. The 28-year-old victim has lodged a complaint against her lover Rahul Gawande and his family members in MIDC Police Station. The 28-year-old victim alleged that the accused Rahul Gawande had promised to marry her. On the guise of an eventual marriage, the accused had established physical relationship with the victim for the past 7 months i.e. from November 2014 to June 9, 2015.
The victim alleged that the accused used to take her to the flat of one Ajay situated in Madhavnagari on Hingna Road to establish physical relationship with the victim. However, when the accused came to know that the victim has become pregnant, he made plans to somehow get rid of her. When the family members of the accused came to know about the victim getting pregnant, the relatives of the accused Rahul including paternal uncle, grandfather, paternal aunt’s daughter Renu and Rahul’s friend Maqsood had met the victim and had pressurized her to abort the foetus. The relatives assured the victim that they will certainly get the accused and the victim married after the abortion. After much pressurizing from the relatives of the accused, the victim was convinced by their assurance and underwent abortion.
However, after the abortion, the accused Rahul refused to marry her. When the victim saw through the ploy of the accused in cheating her, she went to MIDC Police station and lodged a complaint against the accused. The MIDC Police has registered an offence under relevant sections of Indian Penal Code against the accused and are investigating further.
