In yet another shameful incident, a six-months-pregnant woman was brutally raped by an auto driver and two other men on Saturday said police. The incident occurred on May 21 when a 23-year-old pregnant lady was going for a routine check-up at a hospital in Harayana's Manesar with her husband. As the duo was on the by-cycle the lady wasn't comfortable with it while returning home. Later, the woman complained that she was uncomfortable on the bicycle, a senior police officer.
The woman took share auto for her home but didn't reach for a long time. "The woman's husband told her to take a shared auto to reach home in the nearby village. But she did not return until very late," he said.
The 23-year-old rape victim and her husband have lodged a complaint four days after the incident on Friday at a woman police station, police said.
The woman, in her police complaint, alleged that she boarded an auto and was offered some water by the auto driver, following which she got unconscious and was later raped by three persons, the officer added.
"A case of gang rape was registered at the Women Police Station, Manesar, against unknown persons. Doctors, however, said the foetus is stable," the officer added. The survivor hails from Bihar and stays in Manesar with her husband and is a mother of one.
