An FIR was registered on Friday after the 34-year-old victim claimed that she was raped by her uncle Satish Kondekar (45) and Rakesh Kadam (35) at her residence in Grant Road area in south Mumbai, said Ajit Surve, senior inspector at DB Marg police station.

The victim claimed she had nobody to take care of and the duo took advantage of her condition and raped her on several occasions for nine years since 2001, police said.

The victim also alleged that she was forcibly taken to Bangalore and Gujarat for flesh trade.

"The victim in her complaint stated Kondekar forced her to leave the house she was staying in and it was given on rent. Since she has no house to stay, she has now been shifted to Deonar women's welfare home," a police officer said.
