Neighbour slits woman’s throat for resisting rape

THANE: Rakhi Shejwal, a 25-year-old housewife and mother of two who was found dead in her Kopri home on Sunday, was allegedly murdered by her 21-year-old neighbour for resisting his attempt to molest her.

Police arrested Babu Gogavale on Tuesday after inquiries with other neighbours led them to him.
Inquiries revealed that Gogavale, who worked in a chocolate factory, was infatuated with Shejwal and tried to molest her when she was home alone on Sunday.

"Shejwal had never encouraged Gogavale. On Sunday, when he saw her alone at home, he tried to molest her. Shejwal immediately retaliated and scratched his neck. Her resistance angered Gogavale who took a knife from the kitchen and slit her throat," said DCP Sunil Lokhande.

The police claim that when they made inquiries with neighbours, they learnt that no one had taken the stairs to Shejwal's residence that evening.

"The stairs were connected only to Shejwal's first-floor tenement and the neighbouring Gogavale house. Locals said they had not seen anyone else use the stairs. We inquired with Gogavale and his family and learnt that his mother and father had stepped out for work and his brother was out too. Gogavale's statements kept changing and we also saw scratch marks of assault on his neck. He eventually confessed to the crime," said Kishor Pasalkar, senior inspector, Crime Branch Unit V.
The incident occurred around 1pm on Sunday afternoon after Shejwal returned from her mother's place in the vicinity. She had asked her mother to look after her sons, one aged four and the other two, so that she could go home to fill water as her husband, a driver with a private firm, was out on work. When the children retuned around 1:30pm, they found their mother lying in a pool of blood.
