Maharashtra President, Nationalist Congress Party, Jayant Patil along with former Maharashtra minister Anil Deshmukh from NCP visited the 25-year-old gang-rape survivor at Orange City Hospital & Research Institute in Nagpur. The senior leaders on Wednesday had visited the hospital to enquire the condition of the young girl, who was said to be critical. The employee, who was working with Western Coalfields Limited (WCL), is now said to be out of danger.                       

When Nation Next spoke to Jayant Patil, he said, We met the girls parents at the hospital. They were pretty upset with WCL as their daughter wasn’t provided with enough safety at the workplace. Also, the girl, despite being a graduate, was given a job of a labourer. Thankfully, shes out of danger.

Anil Deshmukh said, The girls father is the owner of the land at Gokul opencast mine in Umred, where she was gang-raped. WCL had acquired the land for mining. Despite her being a graduate, she was working at the open cast mine. Moreover, the site where she was working was a remote place and there was no security arrangement done for her. We met her parents and uncle at the hospital. She was the only female working there when the unfortunate incident took place. The CMD and the management committee of WCL is responsible for this tragic incident. The rapists even pierced her eyes with an object! But thankfully, shes now out of danger.

On Tuesday afternoon, four truck drivers gang-raped a 25-year-old woman, an employee of Western Coalfields Limited (WCL) at Umred in Nagpur district (August 14, 2018). The drivers brutally thrashed her and also pierced her eyes with a blunt object. The horrific incident took place after the employee, who was working at a weigh bridge, headed towards a makeshift toilet made of bamboo. The survivor was the only female employee working at the site where the incident took place. However, it has been said that the accused were under the influence of alcohol.

The survivor, who was earlier rushed to a private hospital in Umred, was later admitted to Orange City Hospital & Research Institute. When Nation Next spoke to Bhojraj Zade from police station at Umred, he said, While two out of four accused have been put behind bars, the other two still remain absconding. The survivor remains critical.

A reliable source told Nation Next, The survivor is critical as her face has been smashed and her eyes have been pierced with a blunt object. Also, she has multiple facial fractures and her scalp is seriously injured.

Narhari Zirwal – the Deputy Speaker in Maharashtra Assembly – on Saturday (June 25) issued disqualification notice to 16 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs.

The MLAs, who are being led by Eknath Shinde, are currently staying at Guwahati in Assam. These MLAs are supposed to file their written replies by 5:30 pm on Monday (June 27).  If the MLAs are disqualified, Shinde will lose his legislator’s post and that, crucially, will see his revolt fail.

The Shiv Sena had moved the original notice against 12 rebel MLAs, including Shinde, late Thursday evening and added another four names on Friday.

Even as Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena is seeking disqualification of its rebel MLAs from the assembly, the rebel MLAs led by Eknath Shinde on Saturday (June 25) named their group as ‘Shiv Sena Balasaheb.’

Rebel Shiv Sena MLA Deepak Keserkar said: “Our group will be called Shiv Sena Balasaheb. We will not merge with any party.” Kesarkar has also hinted at a possible alliance with the BJP. “We have only two options remaining in Maharashtra; to go with either the NCP-Congress or the BJP, otherwise the government cannot be formed. However, the question of allying with the BJP will be decided by Eknath Shinde. Whatever decision he takes, we will support it.”

Meanwhile Maharashtra Congress leader Ashok Chavan said: “Until it gets legal authorisation from the speaker, such type of groups will not be authorized.”
