A case was filed with the Bhoiwada police, but has now been transferred to Vithalwadi police station in Thane as the incident allegedly took place in its jurisdiction, at Kansai in Ambarnath. “In her complaint, the victim said that she was forced into a car by four persons while returning home from college and lost consciousness after they gave her an injection. She was then allegedly raped,” said Chandrakant Deshmukh, police inspector from Vithalwadi police station.
The Thane police have recorded the victim’s statement and are in the process of taking down her family’s statement. Sources said the woman was unable to answer when asked why she had not filed a complaint earlier.
