A 25-year-old physically challenged woman was allegedly raped by a 50-year-old man in Behala, on the city's southern outskirts, police said yesterday. The accused is yet to be arrested.

“We have received a complaint against one Bikash Ghosh, accusing him of raping a physically challenged woman. The accused has gone into hiding but we are confident of arresting him soon,” Deputy Commissioner (South West) S Mitra said.

According to police, the incident took place on Monday evening when Ghosh lured the victim to a secluded place and allegedly raped her. “We took the victim’s clothes for forensic tests. A medical test to confirm rape has already been done, reports of which are awaited,” Mitra said.
