A 36-year-old male was assaulted and gang-raped by a group of five men when he went out to smoke, in Vashi, Navi Mumbai. The incident took place on Monday Night, 23rd September 2019. He was kidnapped and taken behind a tree and beaten up by the culprits. He was then sodomized by the group and left there. He was taken to a private hospital where the doctors had to conduct many surgeries to save his life. The victim is currently under observation.
After he regained consciousness, the victim states that therapists seem to be intoxicated by various substances like narcotics and weren’t in their senses. He says that they appear to be young, probably between 25-30.
A case has been registered by the victim’s relatives on Tuesday morning, under section 377 which punishes offences which “go against the act of nature”. Since no laws are currently present for men being raped, this is the best option to choose from. Currently, CCTV cameras are being checked to find the culprits as they are on the run. A description has been taken and the Vashi police station is working on it.
