In yet another case of atrocity against women, a 45-year-old woman was gang-raped in Patna, while she was taking a bath in river Ganga. The incident, which occurred on September 30 was then recorded on camera and circulated on social media.

Reportedly, Patna police of late October 2, arrested the two accused who have been identified as Shivpujan Mahto (45) and Vishal Kumar (28), natives of village Jalgovind under Barh police station area. The Times Of India reported the police as saying that the former is a bus driver while the latter is unemployed.


What had happened?

The incident reportedly took place between 10 am and 11 am on Sunday when the woman was taking a bath in the river at Simar Ghat. The perpetrator dragged the victim, out of the water and raped her even as she begged them for mercy. Reportedly, the woman kept pleading to the accused and asking them to consider the “sanctity” of the Ganga which she referred to as “mother”. Paying no heed to it the other one filmed the crime and later circulated it on social media.

Rural Superintendent of Police Anand Kumar told The Times Of India that Shivpujan raped the woman while Vishal shot the video. He further said that the woman, who is a mother of three, suppressed her ordeal and the incident only came to the fore when the police saw the video which was circulating online.

Reportedly, it was only after persuading the victim for a long time that she was ready to give a statement to the police. However, locals alleged that when the woman went to the concerned police station to file a complaint against the two men, the policemen refused to register an FIR. The SP also said that they were unable to find the video in the arrested men’s phones and are conducting forensic tests.

Violence and atrocities against women have seen an upward trend in the recent times where culprits, unabated by the legal repercussions, carry out such heinous activities. Strict actions should be taken towards those two who have been booked.
