Mumbai, June 9: Nearly a week after the horrifying gang rape in auto-rikshaw in Gurugram that has triggered an outrage in the entire nation, now another case of molestation held in a sharing auto rickshaw.

This time, a 23-year-old woman was allegedly molested by a male co-passenger in a share autorickshaw and later thrown out of the vehicle in Thane, police said on Friday.

The victim, who sustained injuries due to the fall on Thursday night, was rescued by some passersby and admitted to a hospital where she is undergoing treatment, they said.

The woman, a management graduate working with a fitness firm at Mulund in adjoining Mumbai, was returning her home from work at around 9.30 pm. She got into the share auto rickshaw, in which the male passenger was already seated, at Mulund Check Naka to reach her home on Ghodbunder road in Thane city.

After covering a little distance, the co-passenger allegedly started touching her inappropriately to which she objected and raised an alarm, Thane police PRO Sukhada Narkar said.

However, the auto driver, instead of paying attention to the alarm raised by her, took a turn and headed the vehicle towards Pokhran Road No. 2 in Thane.

Later, the co-passenger and the auto driver allegedly beat up the woman. They then pushed her out of the vehicle at an isolated spot on Pokhran Road and fled, Narkar said.

After seeing the victim lying on road, some passersby took her to a hospital.

Narkar said four police teams have been formed to trace the auto rickshaw driver and the unidentified passenger.

The city’s Naupada police have registered a case under IPC sections pertaining to molestation, kidnapping, physical assault and criminal intimidation.

Earlier in August 2014, a 24-year-old software professional, had suffered serious injuries, when she jumped from a moving auto rickshaw in Thane after the driver allegedly tried to abduct her.

The incident had also taken at similar timings around 9.15 pm, when she boarded the rickshaw at Kapurbawdi Naka, which is near Pokhran Road No. 2, to reach her residence at Kolshet in the city.
