The incident in Bhandara district is worse than the Nirbhaya incident in Delhi. Maharashtra has become numb to the incident of gang rape of a single woman in two districts on the pretext of help. A 45-year-old woman was brutally assaulted in Kanhalmoh area. The condition of the woman is very serious and she is undergoing treatment at the medical center in Nagpur. Police have arrested two people in this case.
The victim of torture is a resident of Goregaon taluka of Gondia district. On July 30, she left the house due to a domestic dispute. On her way to Maheri, she met Shriram Urkude (age 45, resident of Goregaon). He took her to Mundipar in Gondia district and tortured her. Later on July 31, he was tortured and left in the forest at Palasgaon. While wandering she came to Dharma Dhaba at Kanhalmoh near Bhandara town on 1st August. Then a person approached her. ‘I will take it home,’ he said. But the woman did not believe him. Then the woman agreed to go with the other person after trusting her. After that, the woman left on a bike with the first person. But, both of them took her to the farm and tortured her. Later, both left there and ran away. On the morning of August 2, the said woman was found naked in the field.
After the torture, the victim was lying like that all night. She had lost her sanity due to torture. At Kanhadmoh, the victim was writhing in pain throughout the night when the youth of the village noticed her. Villagers also rushed to her aid. Police were also informed about this incident. The woman was naked and moaning in pain. Blood covered the body from stomach to feet. The condition of the woman is critical due to heavy bleeding. The accused inflicted serious injuries on the victim’s private parts with sharp weapons. As a result, the victim’s uterus has been injured.
Kardha police immediately rushed to the spot and started investigation. After investigation, it was revealed that the woman was assaulted by one on Mundipar and Palasgaon road in Gondia district and two in Kanhalmoh area of Bhandara district. The team of Kardha and Lakhni police stations as well as the local crime branch formed various teams and searched for the accused. Later both were arrested.
