A minor girl had a miraculous escape after being thrown into a well by a labourer who had raped her in Punawale near Hinjewadi on Sunday night.
The victim survived drowning as there was a little water in the well, and climbed up the metal ladder on the side.
Senior Police Inspector Ganpat Madgulkar said the victim’s labourer parents had gone to the market when Balu Raoji Gaikwad (25), who was known to the family, lured the girl to a field close by with the offer of mangoes, raped her there and threw her into a nearby well.
