Two alleged gang-rapes in Kolkata, Burdwan
Kolkata: Two cases of alleged gang-rape have been reported from the metropolis and Burdwan district, police said on Monday.
A 19-year old medical attendant in a private hospital in Rajarhat area in North 24 Parganas, took a shuttle car from her place of work yesterday to Bidhannagar railway station in the northern area of the city.
The shuttle car was carrying another passenger apart from the driver, police said.
The teenager alleged that she became unconscious inside the car. When she gained consciousness, she found herself in a room in Sonagachi, a red light area, where she was allegedly raped by the driver in the presence of two other youths.
She later managed to escape from the area and took a taxi to Cossipore police station where she filed a police complaint.
"A medical examination has been conducted on the teenage girl. We have started an investigation," Joint CP (Crime) Pallab Kanti Ghosh said.
In another incident, the disrobed body of a young girl was recovered from Shibpur area of Burdwan district with her family members alleging that she had been gang-raped and killed.
The girl had been missing since Friday evening when she left her home for tuition and did not return. Her family lodged a complaint with the police the next day and her body was spotted near her home yesterday, police said.
Angry residents suspecting the involvement of three local youths, one of them the husband of a friend of the girl, who were employed as guards at an under-construction nursing home in the vicinity beat them up severely, police said.
They were rescued by Trinamool Congress workers, who locked the three inside the party office before handing them over to the police.
The locals gheraoed the police station demanding their punishment and blocked the arterial B C Road for sometime.
