Woman on hunger strike at Ambajhari police station over rape

Nagpur : In a case of relations gone sour, a young lady hailing from Wani in Yavatmal district has been camping outside Ambajhari police station to seek justice.

She alleged that she has been raped by a Sub Inspector from Gittikhadan police station. The woman Gautami (name changed) has been sitting outside the Ambajhari police station without taking food or water despite scorching hot.

She claims that a police officer, identified as PSI Sachin Mate, raped her on pretext of marrying her.

According to her, a year ago she had come to meet Mate at Sitabuldi police station in connection with a case. Later he developed a relation with her and raped her under the pretext of marrying her.

But when he refused to marry her, she filed a complaint and Mate was arrested. Later the High Court granted bail to Mate. She said that she would neither leave the premises of the police station, nor will take any food until she gets justice.
