A MOVING TAXI

The harrowing tale began when the victim, who hailed from south Mumbai, mysteriously disappeared from her home. As her family frantically searched for her, little did they know that she had unwittingly crossed paths with her tormentors. Prakash Pandey, a taxi driver by profession, had parked his taxi on the road and was awaiting passengers when he spotted the vulnerable girl. With a chilling disregard for her well-being, Pandey coaxed her into the taxi, setting in motion a chain of events that would forever scar her life.
Seriously no safe place for any age of women 😞😞😞

Pandey’s involvement did not end with enticing the young girl into his vehicle. He proceeded to involve his friend, Salman Shaikh, in this sinister plot. As they embarked on a journey from Dadar to Malwani, a suburb in Mumbai, their actions descended into unspeakable horror. It was during this ride that Shaikh allegedly subjected the defenseless victim to a terrifying ordeal, raping her in the backseat of the moving taxi. Once their gruesome act was complete, they heartlessly abandoned the victim in Malwani and returned to their lives, seemingly unfazed by the magnitude of their crime.
Very very shameful !

Both Pandey and Shaikh lived in Dadar and seemingly led ordinary lives. Pandey earned his livelihood as a taxi driver, while Shaikh worked at a local restaurant and delivered tiffins to homes. It is chilling to consider the facade of normalcy these individuals maintained while concealing the darkness within. However, the long arm of the law caught up with them, and they were promptly apprehended. Following their arrests, they were produced in court and are presently in police custody.

The efficient deployment of technology played a pivotal role in cracking the case. Law enforcement authorities meticulously examined CCTV footage from the vicinity, uncovering crucial clues. Leveraging technical evidence and the taxi’s registration number, the police identified Prakash Pandey as a prime suspect. The victim was subsequently located in the Malwani area, where she was rescued and promptly subjected to a medical examination to document the physical and emotional trauma she had endured. Pandey was apprehended from Dadar and brought to the police station for questioning. During the course of the interrogation, he divulged the identity of Salman Shaikh, leading to his arrest later that evening.
