People suggested me to admit her to the hospital. When we went to a doctor at the hospital. They told me to go to the women's ward. When I went there, they said there was no bed available there."

Budaun, Jan 6: A 50-year-old woman was gang-raped and brutally murdered allegedly by a priest and two others in Badaun district in Uttar Pradesh, police said on Wednesday.

The attack on the woman took place on Sunday when she had gone to a temple, they said, adding that all three accused have been booked, and two of them arrested on Tuesday.

Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Sankalp Sharma said "the post-mortem report confirms rape, and there are injuries in her private parts and a fracture in the leg".

He added that the station house officer of Ughaiti police station has been suspended for laxity in the case.

"On Sunday, the 50-year-old woman, who had gone to a temple, was found dead under mysterious circumstances. Family members of the woman have accused the temple mahant and his aides of raping and murdering her. Based on this, a case was registered against the accused. Two of the accused persons were arrested on Tuesday night, while the mahant is still absconding," he said.

Four teams have been formed to nab the priest, the SSP said.

Badaun, Jan 8: Satyanand, the main accused in the Badaun gangrape and murder case, landed in police net, late on Thursday night, almost four days after a 50-year-old woman was allegedly gang-raped and abandoned outside her home at a village in Badaun district.

District magistrate, Kumar Prashant, confirmed that Satyanand, the local temple priest and the main accused was hiding in the house of one of his followers in a village from where he was picked up and arrested.

Two of his aides had been arrested earlier.

It may be recalled that the victim, a 50-year-old woman, had gone to the temple on Sunday evening.

Later, on Sunday night, she was dropped outside her home in a critically injured condition by two men. The woman later succumbed to the injuries.

According to sources, the victim was a regular visitor to the temple.

Satyanand had come to the village around five years ago and remained mostly aloof. He lived in of the rooms in the temple complex.

People who frequented the temple said Satyanand conducted rituals for them and also offered concoctions for aches and pains.

Badaun SSP Sankalp Sharma said: "The two men arrested have said that they found the woman in an injured state and wanted to help her."

The woman's family rejected the arrested duo's assertion. Her son-in-law said, "If they wanted to help, they could have woken up people in the village. But their intention was to leave her dead. She was a God-fearing lady; we cannot imagine something like this would happen to her in a temple."

Meanwhile, National Commission for Women member Chandramukhi Devi, who visited the village on Thursday, has stirred a hornet's nest by saying that the incident would not have happened had the woman not stepped out alone in the evening.

"This is a crime that has shamed humanity, but I would also like to say that women should not step out alone at odd hours. I feel had the woman not stepped out in the evening, or one of her children had accompanied her, the incident would not have happened," she said.

NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma said, "I don't know how and why the member has said this but women have the right move on their will whenever and wherever they want to."

Mumbai, Jan 5: The Mumbai Police has nabbed a self-styled spokesperson of Mumbai's 'dabbawalas' for an alleged loan fraud in the name of 61 dabbawalas by promising to give them free scooters, an official said on Tuesday.

"A team of our officials picked up the accused, Subhash Talekar, from his village in Pune district and brought him to Mumbai early on Tuesday. He will be produced before a Magistrate Court shortly," Ghatkopar Police Station's Senior Police Inspector Nitin Alaknure told IANS.

Besides Talekar, another accomplice in the alleged loan fraud, Vitthal Sawant is absconding and the police are on the lookout for him.

Alaknure said that the fraud - amounting to around Rs 7,00,000 - was being perpetrated since 2014, and a complaint was lodged against Talekar in 2019.

"Thereafter, investigations were carried out in the matter, but there were hurdles during COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown. He had also moved the Bombay High Court for anticipatory bail which was rejected after which we took the action," Alaknure added.

The official body of dabbawalas, Nutan Mumbai Tiffin Box Suppliers Charitable Trust (NMTBSCT) Chairman Ulhas Muke welcomed the development and said the accused has been "ruining the good image" of dabbawalas with such fraudulent practices.
