Woman raped in the street as people walk past

A woman in her 20s was attacked as she slept under a tree near a busy street in the city of Visakhapatnam in the Bay of Bengal.

Nobody is said to have intervened to help her as she was attacked by a 23-year-old man and some people actually filmed what was going on.

A man by the name of Ganji Siva has been taken into custody.

He is not known by the victim who had fled her family home after an argument with her husband.



Police sub-inspector K Suresh told the Hindustan Times: 'Apparently she was very weak as she had not eaten for several hours and was sleeping on the footpath under the shadow of a tree when Siva, in an inebriated condition, assaulted her sexually.'

'Passers-by did not bother to stop him even as the woman was too weak to even scream.'

A rickshaw driver on the opposite side of the road filmed what happened and handed it to police.

By the time they arrived the attacker had fled the scene but they were soon able to identify the suspect as a result of the footage and witness accounts.

He is in police custody awaiting trial.
