Woman raped at knife-point in front of husband by money lender after failed to repay loan in Pune; video posted on internet
In a harrowing incident that took place in February this year, a 34-year-old woman was allegedly raped at knife-point in Hadapsar, Pune, in front of her husband, who had defaulted on a small personal loan. The accused, identified as Imtiaz H. Shaikh, 47, had reportedly given an interest-free loan of Rs 40,000 to the victim’s husband. However, when the couple was unable to repay the loan, Shaikh started abusing and threatening them.
In February, he lured them to an isolated spot in the Hadapsar government colony and demanded the outstanding money, which they could not repay. Shaikh then took out a knife, threatened to kill the husband, and proceeded to rape the woman while recording the horrific act on his phone.
The trauma did not end there, as the accused later repeatedly demanded sexual favors from the woman, and when she refused, he callously posted the video clip on social media sites.
Finally finding the courage to seek justice, the victim approached the Hadapsar Police Station and registered a complaint on Tuesday.
“We tracked down the accused and arrested him yesterday… He was produced before the court which has given him a two-day remand till tomorrow (Thursday) and further investigations are on,” said Police Inspector Ravindra Shelake. The police are now investigating to determine if the accused had trapped other victims and exploited them in a similar manner.
Crimes against women in India continue to be a grave concern, with incidents ranging from domestic violence, sexual assault, rape, dowry-related violence, and human trafficking. Despite legal and societal efforts to address and prevent such atrocities, women across the country still face numerous challenges in their daily lives. Cases of gender-based violence often go unreported due to fear, stigma, and a lack of faith in the justice system.
While India has taken significant strides in empowering women and ensuring their safety, there remains an urgent need for continued awareness, education, and stringent enforcement of laws to protect women’s rights and create a society where every woman can live free from fear and violence.
