A 34-year-old woman was brutally raped and left battling for her life in Mumbai on Friday. According to the police, the crime took place in a Tempo in the Sakinaka area of Mumbai and doctors who examined the survivor found that she had been tortured with an iron rod in her private parts. This brings back memories of the Delhi gang rape from December 2013 where a physio therapy student was raped in a similarly brutal manner in a bus.

"At about 3 - 3:30 A.M, the Police Control Room received a call about a man assaulting a woman. Sakinaka police night team reached the spot within her lying in a pool of blood in a Tempo," a police spokesperson told the media. She was rushed to the government run Rajawadi Hospital, where doctors say she is in a critical condition. "The Doctors say she has a lacerated wound involving vagina, perineum and anus," said the police. 
 
The survivor, who is a mother of two minor children, has undergone surgery. However, she has still not regained consciousness and remains critical. "She is unconscious and being treated,” Mumbai mayor Kishori Pednekar told mediapersons today. The National Commission for Women (NCW) has taken cognisance of what is called a "barbaric incident".
 
The accused in the Sakinaka case has been identified as 45-year-old Mohan Chauhan. He was arrested within hours of the crime under IPC sections 307 (attempt to murder) and 376 (rape) and further probe was on. "After admitting the woman to the hospital, we filed an FIR and used CCTV footage and information from a confidential eye witness to track down the accused," said the police.
