14-year-old gang-raped in Pune, eight of 13 attackers arrested
PUNE: The Wanowrie police on Sunday night arrested eight of the 13 men suspected to have gang-raped a 14-year-old girl at various locations in and around the Pune railway station between August 31 and September 1.
Six of the arrested men are autorickshaw drivers, while the other two are Class IV railway employees. “On Monday night, three persons were detained for questioning in relation to the crime,” senior inspector Deepak Lagad told TOI.
The police said the girl had left home around 10.30pm on August 31 to meet a friend at the railway station. But her friend did not turn up. “The traumatised girl has not yet revealed how she reached the railway station,” Lagad said.
“An autorickshaw driver spotted her crying and offered to drop her back home. However, he took her to a lodge and raped her. Later, he called his friends, who took turns to rape the girl at various places before they left her on board the Pune-Jammu Tawi Jhelum express train around 5.30pm on September 2,” Lagad said.
“On September 1, the girl’s parents had approached the police to report their missing daughter. We were investigating the matter and examined the CCTV footage in and around the railway station. We spotted the autorickshaw driver taking the girl, buying a ticket and leaving her in the train,” he said.
“The police sent wireless messages to all railway police stations along the train route. The Chandigarh railway police found the girl on September 4 and alerted the Pune police. A police team reached Chandigarh by air on September 5 to bring the girl back to Pune. She has narrated her woes to a woman police officer,” Lagad added.
Cur their dks
Shocking. These guys must be hanged till death !!
kill these demons now.
Castration is the best !!
don't expect such positive from our judiciary bro.
Not sure where's the parents of this minor 14 year old girl and how they allowed her to visit railway station at night alone! Whatever argument you give in defence but it is self invited risk if someone allowing their child specially girl to roam alone in the city.
Now some rusted advocates like Kapil Sibbal and AP Singh must rush to save the culprits & finally the culprits must be granted bail . Very soon after they can plan for another rape
Women must be very careful in a country of rapists. i hate to say this but they should refrain from going out alone at night for their own safety as nothing will stop these rapists....
deliver the justice hard and fast.
I literally cried hearing the entire episode.
Where from do these people get confidence to commit such heinous crime? Whose support do they have ?Their support sy em in the society should be SMASHED ..
It's high time, security is beefed up specifically at secluded place along with steps to train daughters in self defense.
Where are the tough laws that would put fear in the hearts of pential rapists? Our impent po iticians don't care, and crime has never been an ion issue. Shame on us!
All these monsters are to be killed without any mercy. But wondering why a 14 yrs old girl need to visit a friend by night 10.30pm that too alone? if we talk about this, then feminists will start hitting the social media about equality etc., No one worried about the individual safety about the woman and insists only about fre m.
Pune, a safe city has become a den of such heinous crime. Must be given exemplary punishment.
Castrate them & publish their pictures in the print & ronic media.
What an absolute horror! Those men should be sentenced to the harshest punishment possible, even if any of them happen to be juvenile!
Another day, another rape. If they are not severely punished with torture, There need not be law and order at all.
These ppl can't keep their thing inside.. And they think they can get away.
These fellows should be sent to some unknown isolated islands to suffer for the life time without any communication. The courts should act immediatly and pronounce severe punishment.
