Nashik tense after teenage boy tries to rape 5-year-old minor girl

Two days after a teenage boy tried to rape a minor girl, Nashik district of Maharashtra continues to be tense even as chief minister Devendra Fadanvis and NCP chief Sharad Pawar appealed for calm.

Nashik continues to be on the edge even two days after a 16-year-old boy tried to rape a 5-year-old girl near Trimbakeshwar. The incident occurred at Talegaon village on Saturday which led to large scale protests in the district. Heavy police deployment has been made in the district.

The accused has been taken into custody, Nashik Superintendent of Police Ankush Shinde said. Offence has been registered against the boy under relevant sections of the IPC and Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, he said.

As soon as the news spread, locals gathered at the police station on Saturday night demanding that the boy be booked and arrested.

The villagers staged ‘rasta roko’ in Wadovhare, Ghoti and Anjaneri-phata areas. Some people set tyres on fire, and also damaged a tractor in Talegaon. A group of people also protested at Nashik Civil Hospital last night and demanded that the victim be examined by a woman doctor.

People also staged ‘rasta roko’ on Nashik-Igatpuri road, Nashik-Aurangabad road and Mumbai-Agra National Highway on Sunday where later extra police force was deployed and the routes cleared. Some angry people also observed bandh at Ojhar town in the district against the incident.

The enraged people gathered at several places on Sunday also and damaged three police vehicles, including the car of Special IG, Nashik Range, Vinaykumar Choube, when he was rushing to Talegaon.

Police had to lob teargas shells and also fire some rounds in the air at Talegaon to disperse the mob, a rural control room official said.


Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and NCP chief Sharad Pawar appealed for calm. Fadanvis assured that the case would be tried in a fast track court. Maharashtra Water Resources Minister Girish Mahajan, who is also the Guardian Minister of Nashik, visited the girl’s family and termed the incident as “unfortunate”.

Senior lawyer Ujjwal Nikam will be appointed as prosecutor in the case, Mahajan said.

Welcoming Maharashtra government’s stand on the attempted rape of a minor girl in Talegaon, Pawar appealed to masses to ensure there is no disharmony in the society over the incident.

“People are very angry due to the Nashik incident. At the same time, the government showed its will to take steps against the perpetrator of the crime and the police have arrested the accused,” Pawar said.
