Maharashtra: Woman alleges rape onboard express train in Thane; case registered

A case has been registered against an unidentified person for allegedly raping a woman after rendering her unconscious onboard an express train in Maharashtra's Thane district, an official from the Government Railway Police (GRP) said on Friday, reported the PTI.

The victim has alleged that she was travelling by Uttar Pradesh-bound Tulsi Express on March 10 when an unidentified person administered a harmful substance to render her unconscious and allegedly raped her, the official said, as per the PTI.

According to the PTI, the woman has claimed that the assault took place 40 minutes after the train left the Lokmanya Tilak Terminus (LTT) in Kurla in Mumbai and arrived at the Thane railway station, she said.

The complainant approached the GRP in Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh, in April, 39 days after the alleged incident, and from there, the complaint was forwarded to Thane after 21 days, she said, the news agency reported on Friday.

The Thane GRP on Thursday registered a case under sections 328 (causing hurt by means of poison, etc., with intent to commit an offence) and 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code for the incident that took place in March, senior inspector Archana Dhusane said, the PTI reported.

As no CCTV footage was available from LTT, the police checked the reservation charts of Tulsi Express train and two other trains that left the station at the same time, the official said.

The police were examining the mobile phone call records and gathering technical evidence, she said.

A 10-year-old girl was allegedly raped by two boys aged 14 and 15 years in the Chembur area. The duo was booked and detained by the Chembur police and were sent to the Dongri Children’s Correction Home. The incident happened on Tuesday night.

According to the police sources the minor and the accused boys resided in the same locality; she was going back to her home around 10 pm after playing with her friend when the accused caught her and forcibly took her to the first floor of one of the accused's house and where the duo sexually assaulted her turn by turn. The duo threatened her with death if she spoke about the incident with anyone before letting her go.

The minor girl was very scared and seeing her uncomfortable behaviour, her elder sister became suspicious. After taking her into confidence, the minor girl spoke about the sexual assault. Her sister immediately reported the incident to the police, an official said.
