Four unidentified persons allegedly raped a 30-year-old mentally-ill woman who had left home because her mother did not give her ice-cream.
The victim’s mother lodged a complaint at Bhosari police station on Friday.
Police said the victim lives with her family in Bopkhel area of Pimpri-Chinchwad. Her family members had got ice-cream to serve guests at their home on April 30. The woman was upset because she was not offered ice-cream. She left home without telling any of her family members, police said.
Her mother then filed a missing report with the Bhosari police. Even as the police launched a search, the victim returned home. She told her mother that after fleeing from home she met a man who took her to Mumbai, saying that he would marry her.
The man then allegedly took her to a lodge and raped her. The man also took her to a room in some farm land. The man called three more persons to the spot, who also allegedly raped the woman. Later, they told the woman to go home.
Assistant inspector R T Daravade said, “Medical tests of the woman are being conducted. It is a sensitive case as the victim is mentally
unsound. A probe is on.”
