A 25-year-old man, posing as a doctor, allegedly raped a 40-year-old woman admitted at a COVID-19 quarantine facility at Kon village of Panvel in Navi Mumbai on July 16.
As per the police, on July 15, the accused brought food for his brother, who is quarantined on the fifth floor of the 15-storey-building, but accidentally entered the woman’s room. After a brief conversation with the victim, he left her room.
On the next day, the accused was also placed under quarantine on the second floor of the facility as he was in close contact with a COVID-19 positive patient. The accused entered the woman’s room at around 7:30 pm and told her that he was a doctor. He enquired about her health and she informed that she was suffering from body ache. The accused then raped her on the pretext of giving her a massage.
After the incident, the woman complained to the authorities at the centre and an FIR was filed on July 17. In her complaint, the woman accused the man of dragging her into the bathroom, raping her and covering her mouth to prevent her from raising an alarm.
Senior Police Inspector Ashok Rajput told a daily: Their swab samples were collected earlier for COVID-19 and the reports were awaited. Following the incident, the accused was made to undergo rapid antigen test and he tested positive for COVID-19. We have not arrested him and he is still under quarantine at the centre under the security cover.
The police informed that the accused worked at a mall and lost his job due to the lockdown. The victim, who is a resident of Kharghar, is a homemaker and her husband is an auto rickshaw driver. A case has been registered against the accused under Sections 376 (rape) and 354 (outraging modesty of a woman) of Indian Penal Code (IPC).
And that’s how a film is made – Kantara shows the way! | Movie review
Social media is buzzing with one word today and that word is Kantara! Yes, another Kannada film after KGF that has caught the people’s fancy and how. In fact, this one goes a notch higher than KGF – because the film has been released only in Kannada with English subtitles and yet – the movie is capturing the hearts of people across India and the world.
From California, London and Berlin to cities across India, high praise is pouring in for the Rishab Shetty starrer and the actor-director’s Twitter feed is testimony to this. Ordinary cine-goers are putting screenshots of housefull bookings, sharing videos of people clapping and whistling in theatres and then profusely thanking the star for making this film.
So, what’s this film about? Kantara (which means forest in Sanskrit) stands out because it has powerful storytelling at its core. It is rooted in local folklore, has the right amount of action and adventure and comes with a social message too. Man versus nature, native customs and local politics, which spans three timelines and a climax that’s to die for, is what the film’s about. Add to this some superlative performances by the cast, a stellar background score by B Ajaneesh Loknath and mind-blowing cinematography by Arvind S Kashyap that serenades Karnataka’s rustic locales and you have what can be called the perfect recipe for a blockbuster film. Telling you more will just be a spoiler! So, what are you waiting for? Go watch!
