Remo D’Souza’s latest release, ABCD-2 starring Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor may not have painted the town red with its great Box Office opening, but the film is in the news now for all the wrong reasons. The film is making headlines but for a terrible reason that no Producer or Director would want. A back up dancer from the film, Nilesh Nirbhavane has been arrested for raping a 14 year old mentally challenged girl. Nilesh, a dancer by profession, was arrested by the Pant Nagar Police on June 26 when he confessed his crime.
An officer from the Pant Nagar Police station informed a leading daily that Nilesh had been raping the girl repeatedly for a month along with a friend. They would take the girl to public toilets or other isolated places and then rape her.
The shocking matter came to light when the girl’s teacher observed that she had been behaving abnormally for some time. When the teacher questioned her, she found out that the teenager was being abused sexually by three boys. She informed the girl’s parents about this, who then filed a complaint at the Pant Nagar Police station on June 25.
The officer also disclosed that Nilesh’s two broken front teeth served as a major clue. So they called him in for questioning. After a little probe, Nilesh confessed to the crime and was booked under IPC sections 376D (gang rape), 377 (unnatural offences) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention).
Though the victim had accused three people, the Police have only been able to confirm the involvement of two. While Nilesh has already been arrested, the other accused is on the run and Police is hunting for him.
