The Pune rural police have registered a case, late on Monday, against an unidentified person for raping a senior employee of multi-national company from Mumbai.
The crime took place in Aamby valley, a private township near Lonavala, when the victim was attending two days workshop with her colleagues, police sources said.
The crime took place on the wee hours of Sunday when victim was sleeping. Senior Police officials from Pune however maintained utmost secrecy while giving the details about the crime.
“I can only tell you at the moment that we have registered a case against a person for rape. The investigation is on but besides that I can not tell you anything more,” Superintendent of Police Pratap Dighavkar told Hindustan Times. Dighavkar even refused to tell the age of victim.
When HT persisted with the query on whether the crime took place at Aamby Valley, Dighavkar replied saying, “If you already know everything, why are you asking me.” The complaint has been registered at Paud police station.
A spokeperson for Amby Valley confirmed the incident and said, “Prima facie it appears that the employee was allegedly assaulted during the company’s corporate conference which was attended by around 270 employees.”
“Amby Valley has its own in-house security. However, neither the victim nor anyone from the company approached us first. ”
All the attempts to reach through Paud police station went futile with no response to phone calls. Inspector general (Kolhapur range, under which Pune rural police comes) Bhagawant More said: “I am in a meeting and can not tell you anything”
Deputy Superintendent of Police Srikrishna Kokate said: “I am at Baramati and I don’t know about the case. You better speak to Paud police station.”
