90-year-old woman assaulted and raped in Madhya Pradesh

BHOPAL: A 90-year-old woman was raped by her neighbour in Jabalpur region on Sunday night. The incident took place at Jabalpur's Gorakhpur area on Sunday night. The accused forced into her house at around 11pm.

She suffered critical injures on her face and got one of her legs fractured while struggling to save herself from the accused who continued thrashing her till she fainted to rape her, said police.

Accused Kukku, 52, was said to be in an inebriated condition. He has been arrested under different sections and sent to jail. Police said the victim was living alone in a small hut and was dependent on food that neighbours gave her.

She was hospitalised by her neighbours who came to know about the incident on Monday morning. Earlier, a 108-year-old bed-ridden woman was raped by her son’s friend at home in Jabalpur town when the rest of her family was out shopping on December 4, 2010.

Matter surfaced when a worker of the Jabalpur unit of the Mahila Congress took up the matter with the then Madhya Pradesh director general of police SK Raut in Bhopal.

Accused, Gopi Ahirwar, 45, a waiter in a hotel, lived in the same locality of Sita Pahad in Jabalpur cantonment and was a regular visitor to the victim’s home.

Ahirwar, who was drunk, bolted the door from inside. The victim’s family rushed her a private hospital nearby but the doctors refused admission, claiming they wouldn't be able to stop the excessive bleeding.

She was then taken to a state government-run hospital, from where she was discharged after primary treatment. However the survivor starved herself to death.
