Vizag: Woman raped by drunk man in broad daylight, onlookers shoot”

A 35-year-old destitute woman was raped by a lorry driver in broad daylight in full public view on a footpath near the Srinivasa Kalyana Mandapam at Railway New Colony in Vizag Sunday afternoon.

The police arrested the drunk man, identified as Ganji Siva, a historysheeter. The woman was sitting under a tree when Siva sexually assaulted her.

The incident took place on Sunday at 2 pm during the day. However, no one came to help her.

Based on the information given by the auto driver and other local people, police took the lorry driver into custody.

By the time the police has reached the spot, the accused escaped on his bike.

While, the heinous act in itself is disconcerting, what is perhaps, even more shocking, and sad is the lack of outcry while the crime was being perpetrated.

The investigating officer also reportedly said that though they received at least six calls to report the incident, but not one person made an effort to stop the accused. The woman, who was mentally challenged and homeless, was also sent to the hospital and was undergoing treatment. Truck cleaner by profession, Siva has been sent to two weeks of judicial remand, reported Hindustan Times.

"The woman had left her home in Vepagunta near Pendurthi on the outskirts of Vizag after a tiff with her husband and had arrived in Vizag on a bus early Sunday".
