DNA Sunday (Mumbai) - - FRONT PAGE -

Faisal Tan­del The Dom­bivli po­lice reg­is­tered a rape case against the fa­ther and brother of an 18- year- old girl on Fri­day, and the cul­prits were ar­rested on Fri­day night, and will be pro­duced in a Kalyan court on Satur­day.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice, Mahesh Pasat ( 50), a pho­tog­ra­pher by pro­fes­sion, and his son, Hardik Pasat, ( 20), work in a watch shop at Dadar and live at Phadke road, Dom­bivli east. The girl claims that her fa­ther had been raping her for the last two years, and the brother had been raping her for the last two months. Mahesh di­vorced his wife two years ago.

At 8pm on Fri­day night, the girl was found cry­ing by her friend near Dom­bivli po­lice sta­tion. When the friend was told what had been hap­pen­ing to the girl, she took the vic­tim to her mother, a so­cial worker. The so­cial worker helped the vic­tim file a com­plaint at the po­lice sta­tion.

“They used to rape the girl in their own home,” said Vi­las Jad­hav, the se­nior po­lice in­spec­tor at Dom­bivli Po­lice sta­tion. “The neigh­bours were un­aware of what was go­ing on. The fa­ther had threat­ened the girl not to talk about her or­deal to any­one out­side. The girl stud­ied till SSC level, and has been liv­ing at home for the last two years. When we in­ter­ro­gated the vic­tims brother, he told us that he too had raped his sis­ter on a cou­ple of oc­ca­sions.”

The Dom­bivli po­lice had ar­rested both the cul­prits and booked them un­der sec­tion 376 ( Pun­ish­ment for rape), 34 ( Acts done by sev­eral per­sons in fur­ther­ance of com­mon in­ten­tion) and 506 ( Pun­ish­ment for crim­i­nal in­tim­i­da­tion) of the In­dian Pe­nal Code.
