The Palghar police on Tuesday arrested a 33-year-old man for repeatedly raping an 18-year-old girl.

According to police sources, the accused identified as Anand Arun Dukte who hails from Kurje village used to stalk the victim, a college student and a resident of his neighbouring village Balapur in Vikramgad.

Last year in the month of July, when the victim was on her way to college, the accused forcibly abducted her and later raped her at an abandoned farm house. He then threatened her with dire consequences if she disclosed the incident to anyone.  The victim kept mum about the incident, however the accused taking advantage of her silence raped her on several other occasions. Unable to bear anymore exploitation the victim recently narrated her ordeal to a friend who along with the victim's parents registered an FIR at Vikramgad Police Station on Sunday (January 8). The accused was arrested on Tuesday (January 10).

“The accused Dukte was arrested from his home and has been booked under sections 366, 376 (2)(n) and 506 of the Indian Penal Code and under sections (3)(1)(12) of the Atrocities Act of 1989. He was produced before the court where he has been remanded into police custody,” said a police officer.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Intense work activity will take its toll. Keep your cool and control outbursts. You can earn more respect and confidence by being tolerant. Occupy yourself with day-to-day work as anything new you try could face snags. At leisure do something that you enjoy. The frosty atmosphere is something you are not used to but be tolerant for the sake of your beloved who has in the past stood through thick and thin with you.
