A Drunken Man Sexually Assaults A Woman In Vizag
In a spine-chilling incident, a woman was allegedly raped by a drunk man in broad daylight on a footpath along a busy road in Andhra Pradesh’s Visakhapatnam. Shockingly, the horrific crime was captured on camera, as onlookers decided to take a video of the incident, instead of helping the victim.
Reportedly, the accused, identified as 23-year-old G Shiva, has been arrested.
According to reports, the incident happened in New Railway Colony between Tadichetlapalem and the railway station at around 2.30 pm. The accused, Ganji Siva, a 23-year-old truck cleaner, was arrested in the evening and was produced before the court on Monday. He was sent to two weeks of judicial remand. The accused, apparently heavily drunk at the time, approached her and allegedly forced himself upon her.
The entire incident was recorded by an auto-driver present at the spot. However, even as several people walked past the road, not a single person made an attempt to stop the man from committing the crime of raping the hapless woman.
Visakhapatnam IV town police sub-inspector K Suresh told HT that the woman (43) had left her house two days ago after a family dispute.
“Apparently, she was very weak as she had not eaten for several hours and was sleeping on the footpath under the shadow of a tree, when Siva, in an inebriated condition assaulted her sexually,” Suresh said.
Passers-by did not bother to stop him even as the woman was too weak to even scream.
By the time the police rushed to the spot, Siva had already left on his bike. Based on the information given by Srinu and other locals, the police traced Siva and took him into custody.
They sent the woman to King George Hospital for medical examination. “We have booked a case under Section 376 of the Indian Penal Code,” the police officer said, adding that the details of the woman were yet to be gathered.
