Mumbai: Over two months after a photojournalist was gang-raped in Shakti Mills compound, yet another incident of gang-rape has surfaced to shame Mumbai as a 16 year old was gang-raped by six men in Goregaon on the night of November 01, reports said Monday.
The accused were known to the victim and had called her to participate in Diwali puja celebrations on Friday night. However, instead of escorting her home, they drove her to a secluded place and raped her.
A case has been registered against all the accused, who are reportedly in their twenties.
The case was registered at Dindoshi Police Station, under IPC section 376(G).
The police are hunting for the accused men who are on the run.
The incident comes approximately a year after the heinous and widely-condemned Delhi gang-rape that had seen huge swathes of populations breaking into sit-ins and protests against rape crimes.
The incident is also the second case of gang-rape registered in Mumbai in less than three months after a 22 year old photojournalist was gang-raped on August 22 in Shakti Mills compound.
