Pune: A perturbing incident of repeatedly raping a minor girl has come to light in the Wagholi area, where a minor girl was repeatedly raped by a 40-year-old individual taking advantage of the girl’s aloneness in her house. In this regard, the victim’s mother filed a complaint against the accused at Lonikand police station on Sunday, April 7.

The accused individual has been identified as Santosh Mahadev Chaudhari. Chaudhari is a resident of Vishrantwadi. As per the complaint filed by the victim’s mother, the accused illicitly entered the plaintiff’s house, ensuring no one else was present in the house except the victim girl.
