Pune: A mentally-challenged woman was allegedly raped by a ward boy and a security guard in the elevator of a municipal hospital in the Bhosari area on the outskirts of Pune last week, the police said.
Both the accused have been arrested.
The 30-year-old woman, who is also speech impaired, had reportedly been admitted to the hospital for fever on August 26. The accused allegedly took the woman into the elevator on the pretext of shifting her to another ward and raped her there.
It was only after she was discharged from hospital five days later that the woman communicated to the caretaker of the shelter for destitutes where she lives, what had happened, the police said.
A case was then registered. Medical tests have been conducted on the woman and reports are awaited.
