Teacher raped by colleague in Palghar
Milind Bhangre, a 31-year-old teacher of a government school in Gondhe of Palghar, has been arrested by Mokhada police for allegedly raping a 32-year-old colleague after promising her a transfer to a city ashramshala (government hostel).
The survivor used to commute from Boisar which used to take a lot of time, hence she could not take care of her child and family.
