A mentally challenged woman who was 44 years old when she got raped has now been given justice after 4 years. The rapist has been sentenced to jail for 10 years for raping a woman who was a widow and mentally ill 4 years ago. The woman’s children were out of the town of their studies, living in a hostel and she used to live in her apartment with her brother-in-law.
The incident took place in Andheri when the rapist went to the house and asked for a glass of water. In court, a session happened in which the court found Sachin Das (the rapist) guilty and sentenced him the punishment of spending life in jail for 10 years.
The victim herself appeared in the court and revealed that it was the morning of 11th August around 11 am when her brother-in-law stepped out of the house to bring some groceries for the home she was sitting outside her homestead when this man Sachin came and asked her for water. When the lady went in to bring water, Sachin followed her and closed the door from inside and told her that he is having some work from her.
Also, she stated that when she was about to shout for help, he held her and raped her. Soon after sometime when the rapist heard a knock on the door, he stood up, wore his clothes, pushed her brother-in-law and flewed away.
After the incident took place, the woman with her brother-in-law, visited the police station and filed a complaint. When police were investigating the crime, the woman’s brother-in-law recognized Sachin, who used to work at a nearby shop. Police instantly arrested him.
It’s good that the criminal has been sentenced 10 years jail and woman has been given justice. We hope women’s safety will be considered as a priority by the government and they will do something.
