Woman raped in Infosys toilet, two nabbed

Pune, Dec 29 (IANS) A woman was allegedly raped by two men who also filmed the act at the sprawling campus of IT major Infosys here in Maharashtra, police said on Tuesday.

The matter came to light after the woman, working as a canteen cashier inside Phase I of the 115-acre campus, filed a complaint with police in Hinjewadi on Tuesday.

Moving swiftly, police nabbed two people — who are part of the contractual housekeeping staff of a partner of Infosys on the campus.

Inspector V. Khule told media persons that the 25-year-old woman had gone to the washroom when she was accosted by the duo and raped.

While one of the two accused raped her inside the lavatory, the other filmed the act on his mobile phone, and threatened to make the clip public if she informed anyone about the incident, Khule added.

The duo has been identified as Paritosh Baugh, 21, and Prakash Mahadik, 30 — both working in the Infosys canteen at its campus at the Rajiv Gandhi IT Park here.

In a statement, Infosys said it was working closely with police to help in the investigation.

“We have stringent security measures and zero-tolerance policy against sexual harassment, extending to contractual staff too. The company will take necessary action as per policy,” the statement assured.

The accused duo will be produced before a magistrate court.

  1. If this is the case in probably one of the safest areas, imagine the situation in some remote corners!!! I hope that haters don’t blame this on Modji.

    Sir, Is it ‘Aache din’ effect or ‘Gujarat Model’?

    Don’t you remember this norms during three days of state sponsored carnage post Godhra and Muzaffarnagar.How can you forget a person like Babu Bajrangi who compare himself to be Maharana Pratap?

    Only in tolerant India such life sentenced convicts get bail. A beauty of ‘Good Governance’.

    • Remember – there wouldn’t have been post Godhra if there was no ‘godhra’ incident. Why does your community has the bad habit of attacking others and then play victim in the face of consequence? Who are you fooling with your taqiyya tricks?

      • Original R.Pai – “there wouldn’t have been post Godhra if there was no ‘godhra’ incident.’

        THE SAME HOLDS GOOD TO THE FACT THAT IF THERE WAS NO KHALISTAN LIBERATION MOVE TO DIVIDE INDIA AND TO CARVE OUT PAKISTAN LIKE KHALISTAN, AIDED AND ABETTED BY THE RSS, OPERATION BLUE STAR WOULD NOT HAVE OCCURRED AND THE POST INDIRA ASSASSINATION COUNTER BLAST IN DELHI TOO!

    Sir, You are now defending CM Modi’s ‘Action reaction theory’ based on Newton’s law. Thanks for accepting the fact and revealing the truth straight from your heart.

    No matter how the fire started,but for Modi it became tool for political elevation to reach PM position after successfully carrying out ‘Gaurav Yatra’.

    Do you also agree that those victims killed during state sponsored communal riots are also ‘puppies accidently came under wheels’?

    No Godhra.No PM Modi.

    Jai Hind
