Pune: This is as shocking as it can get. A women was dragged out of her car, attacked and threatened for wearing a short dress and going out with men in Pune.
The 22-year old woman was apparently told by a gang of men in wee hours of the morning - “How can you wear such a short dress and roam with two males at such a time? In Pune, this is not allowed.”
As per a report in Mid Day, the incident took place on May 1 when the woman was returning from the sangeet rehearsal for her friend’s wedding.
The women told the Daily - “At 5.30 am, while we were passing by the Lullanagar main signal, one car started driving parallel to our car. The window glasses were tinted, but a man rolled down the glass and peeped into our car.”
The man allegedly hurled abuses at her and her friends and then the gang followed her all the way home.
They intercepted her car there and apparently when one of her male friends tried to intervene, he was hit by the accused.
The report further says that other men then dragged her out of the car and hit her.
The victim said that she feared being raped if her friends had not intervened.
“I dialled 100, but no one answered. The cops arrived an hour later and filed an NC (non cognisable) complaint. After I got to know what an NC is, I visited the Kondhwa police station so many times. I finally managed to file a proper case on Sunday,” she was quoted as saying by the Daily.
Two accused - Amit Mukhedkar and Shubham Gupta - are said to be have been arrested and police are on the lookout for the rest.
The report adds that the police finally agreed to register an FIR a whole week after the incident.
