In yet another shameful incident, a senior citizen was allegedly raped and then robbed at her residence in Powai in central suburban Mumbai.
The 61-year-old woman has alleged that on Friday evening the accused, posing as a courier boy, entered her house. Finding her alone there he first raped her, and then stole her belongings.
The police has registered a case of rape and robbery. They say the accused was known to the victim and that robbery does not seem to be the motive. They have taken one person in custody in connection with the case.
