- Woman was raped on pavement in full public view in Andhra's Visakhapatnam
- People are seen walking past while the woman is being assaulted
- Crime was recorded by auto-driver, he later informed the police
An auto-driver recorded the crime, which took place on Sunday afternoon, and called the police.
The woman was apparently sitting next to a tree on the footpath near the Railway colony -- which is one of the busier areas of the city -- when the man forced himself on her.
"The statements given by both were incoherent and inconsistent," said police officer Madhusudanamurthy.
Activists say the auto-rickshaw driver could have helped the woman instead of filming the assault, even though his video helped the police arrest the rapist.
