The two accused convinced the teenage girl to travel with them in car by offering her to drop her at her destination. The survivor, who was clueless about the accused’s intentions, helped them by giving directions for the destination.
 
Cops said the two, however, took a detour on the way and took her to an isolated place, parked the car and allegedly gang-raped her. The duo has been booked under the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences (POCSO) Act, among other charges.

On the account of arriving Republic Day festival, a heritage dialogue was held on January 22, 2023. The aim was to celebrate the buildings that are living witnesses of the spirit of power centres belonging to today’s Indian democracy and the era of 1903 when Nagpur was the capital of the Central Provinces.
 
The walk included a brief narrative from 1861, where after the mutiny, the detached position of Nagpur District and territories of Saugor and Nerbudda led to the formation of a new province termed “Central Province.”
 
The walk covered the architecture of the structures that were the centre of British rule in the central provinces. Various public buildings of that era, such as the old secretariat, the old High Court building, and the General Post Office, which are eminent examples of British colonial architecture, were covered. Materials like sandstone, basalt, and brick masonry are used to craft the elements of the building’s architecture.
 
During the walk, the stickers designed by team Sakha were distributed to participants as a souvenir, which was one of the key attractions for the participants and a reason for enthusiasm too.
 
The walk was followed by snacks and tea, over which dialogues on improving the condition of heritage structures were held. The citizens sharing their independent opinions was the true celebration of Indian democracy.
 
The walk was organised under the leadership of Ar Sandeep Pathe by team Sakha, which includes Ar Mayuri Deodhar, Ar Amruta Gangakhedkar, Ar Renuka Marotkar, Ar Yashwardhan Pincha, Ar Asmita Korpenwar, Ms Anjali Karpate, Ms Sakshi Mishra, Ms Shruti Beohar and Ms Vrushal Gurbaxani
