A 23-year-old woman was allegedly raped by an auto rickshaw driver and his friend in Kondhwa between Wednesday evening and Thursday morning.

The Kondhwa police arrested Satish Jaipal Mane, 23, and Balaji Maruti Shinde, 31, both residents of Siddharth Nagar in Kondhwa. Police are now on the lookout for another person named in the case.

The case is being investigated by police sub inspector (PSI) A Gore of Kondhwa police station.

The woman, who is a divorcee and works as a domestic help, left her house in Yerawada after having a fight with her brother, according to police.

The woman reached Sun City society in Kondhwa around 10 pm with an intention to meet her estranged husband.

According to police officials, she hailed an auto rickshaw on NIBM road, Kondhwa, near Sunshree society, to travel to Kothrud. Once she was in the auto, the rickshaw driver, Satish Mane, asked her if she was alone and had a mobile phone.

When the woman said she did not have a phone, Mane called up his friend, Balaji Shinde. Shinde asked Mane to bring her to Market Yard. When they reached Market Yard, Shinde asks him to bring her to Siddharth nagar in Kondhwa. Shinde was waiting near a white temple in Sidhharth nagar from where he dragged her out of the auto and took her to a shed and raped her repeatedly.

On the morning of December 14, Shinde took her to his house in Siddharth Nagar, where his mother was present, and asked her to freshen up. Meanwhile, Mane returned and picked her up from the same spot in Sidhdarth Nagar around 10 am.

Mane then took her to Handewadi in Hadapsar and forced her to consume alcohol, before raping her. Around 5 pm on December 14, Mane asked another friend to drop the woman to Camp in his rickshaw. Mane drove the rickshaw with the woman and his friend sitting in the back, where the friend molested her.

The complainant took an auto to Alandi road where she found the Shastri nagar police and narrated the incident.
