Hyderabad: A pregnant lady was abducted and reportedly gang-raped outside the railway station in Andhra Pradesh’s Bapatla district while waiting to board an evening train with her husband and three children. The woman’s husband, who had been severely beaten, attempted to raise an alert and enlist the assistance of the railway police, but was unsuccessful.
The victim is being treated in the hospital, and all three suspects have been apprehended, including a minor.
The event occurred during the night between Saturday and Sunday, when the family was relocating from Guntur to Krishna in search of job. The family hails from the Prakasam area of Andhra Pradesh.
The family of five was resting on benches in the station on Saturday night when the three guys woke them up. The drunken guys then attacked the husband, and when his wife interfered, they pulled her away from the station in Repalle, around 80 kilometres from the state capital Amravati.
The spouse managed to flee and sought assistance from the railway police, but was apprehended by a station official.
The lady was subsequently discovered in the surrounding woods. She was sent to the hospital for a medical checkup and treatment.
The horrifying occurrence occurs at a time when the government is promoting the Disha programme, which aims to enhance the safety and security of women in Andhra Pradesh by expediting investigations, trials, and convictions.
