Maha bar dancer mo­lested at gun­point, three booked

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

Pune: One of four women bar dancers from Pan­vel was al­legedly mo­lested at gun­point and threat­ened with dire con­se­quences at a farm­house in Vadgaon Maval, about 38km from here on the Pune-Lon­avla road, on Fri­day night. The women, who are in their early 20s, had come to a pub at Kore­gaon Park here and were re­turn­ing to Pan­vel when one of their as­so­ci­ates in­vited them to the farm­house.

Fol­low­ing the mo­lesta­tion, the women man­aged to es­cape from the farm­house but the sus­pects chased them in a car. The women sought the help of two men but the sus­pects threat­ened them too with firearm. The women fi­nally sought refuge in a vil­lage tem­ple and some vil­lagers alerted the po­lice.

The Vadgaon Maval po­lice said three men have been booked for mo­lesta­tion and un­der rel­e­vant pro­vi­sions of the In­dian Arms Act. A search has been launched to ar­rest them.
