Rape of a minor sparks political battle in Thane

THANE: The inhuman rape of a three-year-old girl allegedly by a 23-year-old Hitendra Singh at Kopri in Thane (east) last week triggered outrage here even as political parties tried to exploit the sentiment and indulge in bashing up north Indian community members.

Singh who resides in the Anand Nagar area of Kopri was picked up by the police for sexually assaulting a three-year-old girl from the same neighbourhood. The girl was rushed to the Thane civil hospital after she complained of severe pain and told her parents that Singh had lured her to his house.

Immediately after his arrest, political parties in the city raised their voice against the migrant north Indian community accusing them of contributing to the rising crime in the city.

The Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) called for a bandh in the Kopri area and targeted members of the north Indian belt. Tension escalated in the area late on Friday after MNS activists launched a physical attack on the Hindi-speaking residents of Kopri and forcefully entered their home and ransacked their belongings.

The Thane police, however, swung into action immediately and additional SRPF personnel were deployed to ensure that the situation does not go out of hand.

The rape of a three-year-old is not just shameful but a heinous crime which no one will endorse. However, some representatives of political outfits tried to give it a community colour and exploit the situation. We have, on our part, cautioned the members of the north Indian community to avoid any confrontation. We condemn the rape and are equally eager to ensure that the guilty is given sever punishment,'' said A Shukla, a local here.

The Shiv Sena, which is the ruling party in the Thane municipal corporation, was equally charged up on the issue and its activists destroyed the stall where Singh was working as an errand boy.

Singh is remanded to police custody and the victim is undergoing treatment at the civil hospital here.
