Rapist woman arrested
A day after a 40-year-old woman was booked for allegedly assaulting a minor boy sexually, she was arrested on 2 April by the RCF police. The woman, a resident of MHADA Colony, Vashi Naka, Chembur, has been remanded in police custody till April 4. The woman’s name as per Assian Age is – Shahaz Zakira Khan while as per Mumbai Mirror – Rahat Khan.
The 16-year-old victim was taken to Sion hospital for a medical test. The police said they are collecting evidence in the case, which is unique as a woman has been booked for sexual assault and sexual harassment under sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act and sections 341 (wrongful restrain) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the IPC.
The police have also recovered a note on a stamp paper, allegedly written earlier by the boy, declaring that he was leaving the house and if anything happened to him the accused would be responsible. The note reads: “Mein apni marzi se ghar chhod kar jaa raha hu. Rahat Khan ke sat kabhi life mein mujhe kuch bhi hua to Rahat Khan jimedar hai.”
According to the boy’s parents, the incident came to light recently when they questioned him on noticing changes in his behaviour. “My son’s behaviour changed over a few weeks and he wasn’t able to concentrate on studies,” said his father. “He once went to the woman’s house to meet her son. She sedated him, took a video of them in a compromising position, and threatened to file a rape case. She also told him she is pregnant,” said the father.
“My son suddenly began behaving differently. I think he wrote the statement on stamp paper in February. He wasn’t ready to give the police a statement as he was scared. But after he was taken into confidence by the police, he recorded his statement four days ago. The police then arrested the accused,” the father said.
In his complaint, the boy said that his ordeal began late last year when he went to meet his friend. While his friend wasn’t at home, his mother invited him in and offered him a drink which was spiked. She then forced herself on him, video recorded the scene on her cell phone, and blackmailed him with it for three months.
