Women's Panel NCW Visits Mumbai Rape Victim's Family, Crime Spot

The crime bore similarity to the 2012 ‘Nirbhaya’ gang-rape case of Delhi

Mumbai:

A team of the National Commission for Women (NCW) on Sunday met the family members of a woman who died after being brutally raped, and also visited the crime spot as well as the hospital where she was treated, a police official said.

The 34-year-old woman was raped and brutalised with a rod by a man inside a stationary tempo in suburban Sakinaka in the early hours of Friday. She died at a hospital during treatment on Saturday, police earlier said.

The crime bore similarity to the 2012 ‘Nirbhaya’ gang-rape case of Delhi.

The 45-year-old suspect, arrested within a few hours of the incident, was later charged with murder.

According to a police official, four-five members of the women’s commission first went to the victim’s house in Sakinaka area and met her family members on Sunday. The team later went to the spot where the crime took place inside the tempo. The panel members later also went to the Sakinaka police station to seek details of the case.

The team also went to the city-based Rajawadi Hospital where the woman died after a nearly 36-hour battle for life, and collected details in the case, the official said.

The commission’s members are also likely to visit the office of the state Director General of Police (DGP) here in connection with the case, official said.

Besides being raped, the victim was assaulted with an iron rod in her private parts and lost a lot of blood, a police official earlier said, adding that she was also stabbed with a knife.

The accused, who hails from Uttar Pradesh, worked as a driver and lived on the pavement in the same area. He was identified with the help of CCTV footage and traced within a few hours of the incident.

Mumbai Police Commissioner Hemant Nagrale earlier told reporters that the crime came to light when the watchman of a company located on Khairani Road in Sakinaka called the police control room and said a man was seen thrashing a woman.

Police reached the spot within 10 minutes and found the victim inside a parked tempo. As her condition was serious, they decided to take her to hospital in the same vehicle so as to save time. They got the key of the tempo from the watchman and drove her to Rajawadi hospital in suburban Ghatkopar, the official had said.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray had termed the incident as a “blot on humanity”, and ordered that a charge sheet in the case must be filed within a month. He had also directed that measures should be taken to make the city safer for women.
