In a shocking incident that reveals how Bhubaneswar has become unsafe for women, a young model of a fashion studio was abducted and molested for over an hour in a moving car by three miscreants posing as police personnel.
The model was waiting with her two male friends near Baramunda last night for a cab to take her home in Patia. Little did they know that a two hour-long nightmare was in store for them.
At around 11.30 pm, three inebriated men approached them in a vehicle and forced the three into the car claiming to be cops. What followed was an unimaginable ordeal as the men molested the young woman and threatened to kill the three horrified youngsters while driving the vehicle around the city.
“They asked my friends to get down from the vehicle and told them to arrange money. They said they would take me to Khurda. From their conversation, I could make out that the three were planning to rape me,” the woman said.
Meanwhile, one of her colleagues, Abinash, called up their manager and uttered the names of places like Jaydev Vihar, Nayapalli and CRP Square in a bid to indicate the horrifying situation they were in. On hearing screams of the woman on the background, the manager realised that his colleagues were in danger and called up the police.
Around five PCR vans were pressed to locate the vehicle. It took the police around half an hour to trace the Bolero and rescue the woman and her two colleagues. A case has been registered and the three miscreants arrested, DCP Satyabrata Bhoi said.
