Yerwada, 6th October 2021: Ten years ago, a four-year-old girl was brutally raped. To help that girl, police, journalists and social activists came together and raised Rs one lakh.

The amount was deposited in the girl’s name as a fixed deposit (FD). After the FD matured, Rs 2.43 lakh was handed over to the girl’s father by the Joint Commissioner of Police Ravindra Shiswe.

Speaking about this, Joint CP Shisve said, “A couple from Karnataka had settled in Kharadi, Pune with their four-year-old daughter for subsistence. Their four-year-old girl was kidnapped and raped on the night of 29 June 2011, while her parents were sleeping in a labour camp in Kharadi.

The health conditions of the girl who was sexually abused became critical. Realizing the seriousness of the situation, police rushed her to the Sassoon hospital. Later she had to be shifted to Jehangir Hospital where Dr Dasmit Singh performed two successful surgeries without charging a penny.

After that, the police, local journalists and social activists came together and provided financial help for the girl. It was the best example of humanity.”

The case was investigated under the guidance of then DCP (Zone 4) Sanjay Jadhav, Senior Police Inspector Deepak Sawant and Police Inspector (Crime) Vishwanath Ghanwat of Yerwada police station. The investigation team included PSI Sunil Kulkarni, ASI Prakash Langhe, ASI Rajaram Ghogre and Head Constable Kiran Deshmukh.

Jt CP Shisve felicitated Inspector Ghanwant, social activists Vijay Galande, Lalit Galande, Yogesh Devkar, Jayant Yerwadekar, Santosh Avhale, Mehboob Khan Dewda, who had come forward to help the minor girl.

During the program, Senior Police Inspector Yunus Sheikh, social workers and journalists were present on the occasion.
