At 3:00am on 10th September 2021 A 34-year-old woman was raped and brutally assaulted inside a tempo that was parked in Saki Naka, Andheri, Mumbai. She had been raped and assaulted with an iron rod in her private parts. The rod was so brutally inserted inside her private parts that it reached upto her abdomen. A watchman who saw the woman being beaten up inside the tempo alerted the police control room. A police team rushed to the spot to find a woman lying in a pool of blood in the tempo. Bloodstains were also found inside the vehicle. She was taken to the Rajawadi hospital, Ghatkopar. She was brought to the hospital in a very critical state. However, as her injuries were very critical she died 36 hours later. After the incident, the rapist ran from the spot and was tracked to Kurla with the help of CCTV footage and arrested on 10 september evening. The man’s name was Mohan Chouhan. The incident has shocked people all over India. They are shocked as to how such a dangerous incident could happen in Mumbai which is known to be a safe city. 

Hours before she was raped, the woman had visited her mother and her two minor daughters after a long time at a slum. Her relatives said that the woman visited the family for five to 10 minutes on 9 Sept night and left soon after. They say she had a very difficult life. The family members said that the woman’s husband abandoned her and their daughters nearly eight years ago. The incident impacted her in a big way and she had been mentally disturbed ever since. She then started living with her mother. As she didn’t have a job and had to raise her daughters, she became depressed and mentally disturbed. Six years ago, she left home and started living on the road while her mother took care of the kids. Her mother is disabled and works as a vegetable vendor to support the children. 

Residents of the area where the incident took place said the accused used to frequent the place and regularly consume alcohol in a nearby bar. A key maker, who runs a stall on a footpath near the scene of crime, said, “My father has been running this stall for over 30 years and I was born and brought up in this area. This is the first time that I have heard of such an incident. The area has been safe for women because the Sakinaka police station is barely 10 minutes away.” Many politicians are demanding strict action against the rapist. After the death of the woman raped in Sakinaka, Mumbai Police commissioner Hemant Nagrale, said the police cannot be present at every crime location . People became very angry by his statement. The National Commission of Women (NCW) has said that the police are responsible to maintain law and order and they have to take responsibility. The National Commission for Women have demanded that the government take care of the children and give them Rs 18.5 lakh as compensation. The NCW, meanwhile, has asked the state government to give them accommodation and a government job to the family.
