Mumbai nightmare: 52-yr-old raped in car

March 12, 2006 20:48 IST

The Mumbai police on Sunday arrested a 26-year-old man for allegedly raping a 52-year-old woman in Worli area of the city.

The arrested youth has been identified as Abhishek Kasliwal and the incident happened in the wee hours of Saturday, police sources said.

According to the woman, the accused offered her a lift sometime after 0230 IST on March 11 near the Prince of Wales Museum in South Mumbai's Colaba.

But instead of dropping her at Bombay Central as promised, he took her to Shriram Mills compound in Worli and allegedly raped her repeatedly in the back-seat of the car and later dumped her back in Colaba, she has said in her complaint.

According to the sources, when the accused was arrested, he told his name as Vicky Malhotra, but later it turned out to be a false name. Kasliwal, the accused, is a son of a Shriram mill-owner, sources claimed.
