In a shocking turn of events, a back up dancer from the recently released ABCD 2 has been arrested for allegedly raping an intellectually challenged girl. According to a report in Mid-day, the accused has been identified as 20 year old Nilesh Nirbhavane, who along with a friend of his would apparently take the 14 year old girl to isolated spots and rape her. Sadly, the girl has been going through this since May and the complaint was registered on June 25th.

We’re told that a teacher noticed a change in the victim’s behaviour and gently questioned her. It is then that she revealed details of what she’d been going through.

Deputy Commissioner of Police Vinay Kumar Rathod said:

Initially, she had given the names of three accused. We took in one of them for inquiry, but investigations revealed he had no role to play in the incident. However, the girl described Nirbhavane using a distinctive feature that he had two broken front teeth.

Based on this, cops later picked up Nirbhavane on June 26, and he confessed to the crime.

The accused have been booked under Sections 376D (gang rape), 377 (unnatural offences) and 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of common intention) of the Indian Penal Code.

The search for the other accused in the case continues.
