Woman raped inside moving taxi in Kolkata, attacker heldJune 8th, 2012 - 7:30 pm ICT by IANS
Kolkata, June 8 (IANS) A 26-year-old woman was raped inside a taxi in the city, police said Friday, adding that the attacker has been arrested.
“The woman, a housewife, had lodged a complaint that she was raped inside a moving car late Thursday night. Acting on her complaint, we arrested the accused, Mumtaz Khan, who has confessed to have committed the crime,” Azizul Mollick, an officer of the Entally police station in central Kolkata, told IANS.
The incident comes nearly five months after an Anglo-Indian woman was raped inside a moving car in the city’s Park Street area.
The police officer said the housewife, a resident of Barrackpore town near the city, visited a relative at the SSKM Hospital. Later, she boarded the point-to-point taxi which Mumtaz Khan was driving.
Mumtaz Khan then called his friend Habib Khan and asked him to drive the taxi while he went to the backseat and raped the woman, said the officer.
After the complaint was lodged, police first questioned Habib Khan. He led them to Mumtaz Khan, who was arrested Friday morning from his house in Park Circus.
Mumtaz Khan had also snatched a gold chain and Rs.3,000 from the woman and dropped her near Entally, said the officer.
